“Our language is our history, our identity. The promotion of language is very important, we need to implement strategies on how we can pass our language to our youth. It is so important we work to preserve our language.”

~Grand Chief Garrison Settee appreciates the opportunity to speak and hear Cree during his attendance at the Swampy Cree Tribal Council’s 45th annual general assembly yesterday, August 3, 2022.

He shares:

“Ekosi to the Misipawistik Cree Nation for hosting the Swampy Cree Tribal Council’s assembly. Thank you Chief Heidi Cook and Council for hosting us. It was good to see Grand Chief Nelson Genaille and the Swampy Cree leadership. It’s great to hear the focus on the Cree language from our beautiful Elders.”
