The Cree language has the most speakers of any Aboriginal language in Canada. This exhibition will explore the history, current usage, and future of the Cree language. Visitors will learn about the wide range of dialects of Cree across the country and how they differ. Additionally, the exhibit introduces visitors to Cree word formation, the syllabics writing system, and the role animacy plays in the language. Photographs and audio clips further enrich the exhibit experience.
