Funny Little Stories
Canadian Plains Research Center, 2007 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 110 pages
Funny Little Stories is a collection of nine stories representing the Plains Cree, Woods Cree, and Swampy Cree dialects, with a pronunciation guide and a Cree-to-English glossary.
Students and Elders come together in this volume to offer samples of three distinct genres of Cree storytelling: word play, humorous accounts of life experiences, and traditional stories about Wisahkecahk, the trickster-hero.
Each story is illustrated and is presented in both Standard Roman Orthography and syllabics, with English translation.
