Language Information

Cree is one of the major Indian languages of Canada. It is spoken by about 85,000 people in the provinces of Ontario, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan. Cree to this day is written in a system of syllabic symbols introduced by a Protestant missionary in the year 1840. The language belongs to the Algonkian family. There are four main dialect divisions of Cree but the two important ethnic divisions historically were the Swampy Cree of the Forests of Manitoba and Ontario and Plains Cree of Saskatchewan and Alberta.

Greetings, my very dear friend,
I am writing to you again, a little. I have not seen another letter from you since I wrote to you. I am wondering how you are. I wonder if you are in good health. I would really like to hear from you folks. Today's mail-plane will be the last to arrive before the freeze-up; therefore I am writing this letter this morning so that I may send it off immediately. I myself am well at this time.
