I Will Return

The Plains Cree are storytellers. It is our way of life. Our worldview is that everything comes from the Land and is related: wahkohtowin — kinship.

In this colonized world, how do we continue to tell our stories, especially when some are lost?

They live in our people and in our blood. They live between us. We must continue to tell our stories to our children so they too can live miyo pimâtisiwin — the good life. As a Metis/Cree mother, it is my responsibility to give my daughter the ways to return home: to her songs, stories, and ceremonies.
