Nehiyawetan | Let's Speak Cree: Theatre

“Theatre” Season 3 Episode 6

Ladies and gentleman, give a big hand for Kai, Kayla and Tantoo Cardinal. It’s theatre day with face-painting, acting and Cree words about theatre. Join us as Tantoo takes us into the world of make-believe and save a big round of applause for musical guest (and actor) Renae Morriseau.

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.
