CFRAC: Beginner & Intermediate Nehiyaw Language Classes

The ᓀᐦᐃᔭᐤ (Nêhiyaw or Plains Cree) Language Lessons Program is an ongoing offering of the Centre for Race and Culture that is unique to their organization.  This is due to the methodology used by Reuben Quinn, the language instructor and project coordinator.

The objective of these language lessons is to teach ᓀᐦᐃᔭᐍᐏᐣ (Plains Cree language) using this holistic approach based on 44 symbols, 14 consonants and the eight-direction syllabic system. The directions’ philosophies are included as the lessons are taught in the manner of natural law.
