Cree Language and Culture
A Selective Bibliography of Supplementary Learning Resources has been prepared to assist teachers in selecting appropriate learning resources for students receiving Cree as a second language instruction. The bibliography includes print and non-print learning resources selected for use in the Cree Language and Culture Program, ECS-Grade 9 and in Cree instruction at the senior high school level. Included are resource materials written in Cree, using either syllabics or Roman orthography, and resources written in English. The resources cover subject areas which promote language learning and/or develop cultural sensitivity as well as professional references. Non-print materials include films, videos, prints and audiotapes.
Plains Cree Texts
The texts here presented were obtained during the summer of 1925 for the National Museum of Canada (Department of Mines), Ottawa, Canada. Thirty-six of the texts obtained on this trip have appeared as Bulletin Number 60 of the National Museum, under the title, Sacred Stories of the Sweet Grass Cree (Ottawa, 1930). The collection now before the reader consists of forty-six texts obtained by dictation during a five weeks' stay on Sweet Grass Reserve (Battleford Agency, Saskatchewan); the texts published in the above-mentioned Bulletin were obtained at the same time and from the same informants.
