Cree Vocabulary for Kids: Louis Says on APTN

Louis Says

Louis Says

With Louis Says now in its third season, it’s exciting to discover that all eight Season One episodes of can be viewed online thanks to APTN at http://aptn.ca/louissays/. At eleven minutes apiece, you can even binge-watch the whole set in less than two hours!

And while the English version incorporates individual words, APTN also has a Cree-language edition (th-dialect) that shows on Saturday and Sunday mornings.

I love seeing the little cross-language confusions become part of the fun, and seeing Randy’s mom drawing the connections for him between contemporary and traditional culture.

There’s also an app (that I’ll be testing very shortly): http://www.androidpit.fr/application/com.playrific.android.louis_says

And of course the voicing talents of CLN members Cynthia Cook and Solomon Ratt are another terrific bonus.
