Learn Conversational Ojibway and Cree


* This post was originally published March 15, 2017 for the IEATA - Indigenous Roots of Expressive Arts Therapy conference in Winnipeg October 4-8, 2017

Bozhoo! Tanisi! We are thrilled to welcome Aandeg Muldrew as our Indigenous language teacher.

Join us in Call to Action #14 which acknowledges “Aboriginal languages are fundamental and a valued element of Canadian culture and society, and there is an urgency to preserve them.”

We invite you to learn basic conversational Anishnaabemowin (Ojibway) and Nehiyawewin (Cree – in this case Swampy Cree). Listen, practice, like and share! Miigwetch! Kinanaskomitin!
