Nehiyawetan | Let's Speak Cree: Being Healthy

“Being Healthy” Season 3 Episode 7

Good health has always been important in Aboriginal culture, as Kai and Kayla discover when they begin learning Cree words and phrases about health. As part of their adventure, they learn why visiting the dentist really isn’t scary. Musical guest Nadine Gagne sings an engaging song about how to be healthy.

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.
