The Six Seasons project aims to move forward the ongoing work of reclaiming Indigenous languages, histories, and knowledges among the Asiniskaw Īthiniwak (Rocky Cree).
We do this in the context of the calls to action by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada for the revitalization of Indigenous cultures, the “relearning of Canada’s national history,” and the reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people.
On October 24, 2019 the Six Seasons of Asiniskaw Ithiniwak collaborative research group celebrated the launch of the first picture book app in the Six Seasons series. A retelling of the 2013 story Pisim Finds Her Miskanaw, by William Dumas, the app brings Pisim’s journey richly to life through full-colour illustrations, songs, interactive games, and cultural notes. Download the app for free in the iOS app store
