I Love You Enough To Give This Knowledge To You: Teaching Cree Language

Clay Scott

In this episode of Mountain West Voices, we visit a remarkable language teacher at the University of Alberta in Edmonton. Dorothy Thunder grew up at Little Pine First Nations Reserve in Saskatchewan, surrounded by the Plains Cree language. Today, the number of young people who speak the language is dwindling. Dorothy has dedicated her life to reversing that trend.
