Language is an important aspect of the Cree Identity! Nature is our cultural university where the language and our way of life are derived from.
Cree language and syllabics are implemented into our everyday lives, education and processes.
The Cree Syllabics were introduced in 1840’s by James Evens and was adopted by the Cree’s in the late 1900’s and early 20th century. Today many of our elders are familiar with the Cree Syllabics, and it has been implemented as in our school curriculum at Maquatua Eeyou Elementary and Highschool levels.
