I recently started teaching and I find this site pretty useful with your resources. I have used this as one of my daily teaching resources. However, I do want to make a suggestion to you that I thought about the other day as I was making my Animal Unit worksheets.. considering the need for images or coloring pages that represent our way of life....It would be very useful for myself, along with other CLIP teachers if the site had tradional Cree clipart and coloring images. It is quite time consuming when we have to do it all manually. I am pretty sure the CLIP teachers would really use them for their benefit also. Please put this suggestion into consideration.
Thanks for this site.

I LOVE THIS SITE. MY FATHER WAS BORN IN CHICOUTIMI, QUEBEC, IN 1920. HIS NAME WAS ALBERT JOSEPH BERGERON. HIS REAL MOTHER DIED AND HAD A STEP MOTHER WHOM HE HATED. HE LEFT CHICOUTIMI AT AGE 14 FOR THE WEST. I KNOW FOR A FACT I HAVE RELATIVES LIVING IN THIS COMMUNITY. COULD SOMEONE HELP ME TRACK THEM DOWN OR FOR SOME. THANK-YOU"

The website has always been helpful, but it has really made exciting leaps forward this year. Again, congratulations to you and your team.
With best regards,
My Dad and I are so thrilled to find this. After being urbanised for so long this is a holy grail. Thank you for all your hard work you and your members put into this project. We thought that we were loosing our family language.
This helps, we can only make our way back to James Bay every few years and only then do we get to hear and practice Cree. My aunt will be so proud, as she’d spent many hours at the kitchen table in Fort George trying to give me lessons.
This site actually brought me to happy tears.
