Congratulations to Solomon Ratt whose non-stop work ethic has now produced a new volume of funny stories – nîhithaw âcimowinaWoods Cree Stories – which he has written in his Native dialect of Woods Cree!

This volume is the fourth publication in the the 4th volume in the First Nations Language Readers series prepared by the University of Regina Press.

I wonder if we can persuade him to give us some audio files, so we can all read along!

    I enjoy your stories about shakin spear and syllabics phrases. Currently my students and I are learning to translate SRO to syllabics in the “th” dialect. Kimosompwatinahk Ochi nitha.
    Good morning and it sure would be awesome to invite you up for Cree storytelling. I need more weather terms ( phrases). My students love humour as well.
