Nehiyawetan | Let's Speak Cree: Colours

"Colours" Season 2 Episode 2

The world is a colourful place, and Kai and Kayla are learning about the four colours of the medicine wheel – white, yellow, black, and red – with their Auntie Josephine and guest performer, Art Napoleon. Artist Jerry Whitehead stops by to teach Kai and Kayla about mixing colours for their beautiful painting.

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.
