Descrizione

As an Elder once said, "e;Learn one Cree word a day for 100 days, and emerge a different person."e;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 "e;the sexiest"e; of them all (according to Tomson Highway). Based on a series of Facebook posts, the 100 short chapters or "e;days"e; 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. The result is both an introduction to the most widely spoken Indigenous language in Canada and an opportunity to see the world, and ourselves, in another way.
