Entry #13: Online Cree Dictionary

(http://www.creedictionary.com/)

This resource is an initiative of the Miyo Wahkohtowin Community Education Authority and the Dr. Earle Waugh Dir. Center for Culture & Health Family Medicine at the University of Alberta. Their focus is on building an interactive resource to support the preservation and development of Cree language in Canada. Their resource is available in app form as well, increasing its practical usability. The resource includes syllabic converters based on specific subgroups of Cree. The site also includes links to external Cree language resources as well as a site from which to download fonts that will support the appropriate characters and symbols in written Cree. This resource is a living example of many of the cultural preservation and rejuvenation themes we have been exploring in this course. It will also be a good resource for engaging more accurately with Cree-based concepts since the language can be explored as its own cultural component.
