“Are You Hungry?” was written by Calyn Stange, a La Ronge dietitian who grew up in the community and works with the Saskatchewan Health Authority. The book, written in 3 different languanges (Cree, Dene, and Michif), promotes the use and preservation of Northern languages. Our video readings help teach adults active reading skills as well as provides correct pronounciations for those where Cree, Dene, and Michif are not their first language.
After filming the 3 versions of “Are You Hungry” (Cree, Dene and Michif), we asked the participants why languange and culture are important for our youth.
Are You Hungry – Michif
