Nehiyawetan | Let's Speak Cree: Pow-Wow

“Pow-Wow” Season 3 Episode 13

It’s the Deer Lake Tansi Pow-wow and you are all invited. Kai and Kayla learn words that help us understand the pow-wow, hear stories about the beginnings of pow-wow, and they get to take part in this traditional event. Smokey Valley and Travelling Spirit Drummers are the host drums. Curtis Clearsky will also drop in to perform at this celebration with his hip-hop tribute to the power of the pow-wow.

Nehiyawetan means "Let's Speak Cree". This dynamic thirteen 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.
