Nehiyawetan | Let's Speak Cree: In the Garden

"In the Garden" Season 2 Episode 1

Tansi! Kai and Auntie Josephine are back, and joined by new student, Kayla, for another fun year of Cree. What better way to start the new year than “In the Garden”, learning about all the things that grow right in their own backyard! Guest Jason Burnstick joins in on the fun with a song about the nature that surrounds us.

Nehiyawetan means "Let's Speak Cree". This dynamic six part series combines live action and animation in an innovative approach to making the Cree language accessible to young children. It follows a group of Aboriginal children as they learn to speak Cree in the city. The approach taken reinforces learning through play, music, adventure and storytelling. Nehiyawetan: Let’s Speak Cree promotes language retention, offers a Cree perspective of the world and encourages smart choices about living in the city.
