100 Days of CreeBook - 2016
"As an Elder once said, 'Learn one Cree word a day for 100 days, and emerge a different person.' In 100 Days of Cree Neal McLeod offers a portal into another way of understanding the universe--and our place within it--while demonstrating why this funny, vibrant, and sometimes salacious language is 'the sexiest' of them all (according to Tomson Highway). Based on a series of Facebook posts, the 100 short chapters or 'days' in the book present chains of related words, some dealing with the traditional--the buffalo hunt, the seasons--and others cheekily capturing the detritus of modern life--from internet slang to Johnny Cash songs to Viagra."--
