“Canoeing in the City” Season 3 Episode 4

Slap on some sunscreen and grab a life jacket – we’re going canoeing in the city with Kai, Kayla, Auntie Josephine and the wonderful people at Takaya Tours from Tsleil-Waututh First Nation! Discover words for canoeing, see how canoes are made, and sing along with musical guest Art Napoleon about this fun and cultural activity.

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.
