Eastern James Bay Cree Language
This site is intended as a resource for Cree language teachers, literacy instructors, translators, linguists, and anyone who has an interest in the nuts and bolts of the Cree language. We hope that the live possibilities of the internet will encourage participation. We are seeking support form all who value linguistic diversity and want the Cree language to be alive and well in the 21st century and after.
There are two major dialects of East Cree: the Southern and the Northern dialects. Some, but not all pages are available in both dialects, depending on whether its author is a Southern or a Northern speaker. There is room in the databases to also include Inland and Coastal variations. Know that our intend is to find a balance between standardization and respect of speech diversity.
