Only after the last river has been poisoned
Only after the last fish has been caught
Then will you find that money cannot be eaten."

Why the Weasel Is Nervous


A really good book on Cree, and one which points out the dialect differences as well, is "SPOKEN CREE", published by Pica Pica Press out of the University of Alberta Press. There is also an extensive audiotape collection that is available with it. First published in 1962, it is based on the Cree of James Bay, Canada.
