Cree Language Revival

Tansi nitooteemuk. Greetings to all my Relations. I am a Cree grandmother and am honoured to hold Blood Memories from my great-grandfather Chief Joseph Charles of the Lac La Ronge Indian Band, and my grandparents Edward and Sarah McKenzie. My parents are John and Janet Feitz. I am learned in both my beautiful Cree culture and also earned a Masters degree in Education from San Diego State University. I am a teacher, motivational speaker, broadcaster, and a community leader and developer. My name is Ina Feitz Ray of Sandy Bay in northern Saskatchewan, Canada, and I am looking forward to connecting with you all.

Quotes

  • “when the women’s heart are on the ground, you know a nation is defeated… the more trauma that it brings, we are strong people and we will do what we have to do and pressure the government to do things better”
  • Doctrine of discovery – “anyone that didn’t believe in Christianity, was not human, and it was their duty to Christianize these people.”
  • “Residential schools where they could do whatever they wanted to get them Christianize and assimilate. children as young as 4 were taken from families to these schools, they were not allowed to speak their language, and other horrific things like sexual, mental, and physical abuse. “
