Randy Morin

Viewpoints

Each language has its own rhythms and characteristics developed in connection to the lifestyle of its speakers. Telling stories and myths had always been a potent way of passing information and histories from one generation to the next. Preservation of Indigenous languages is an important part of the future of Indigeneity in Saskatchewan and Canada. Join Randy Morin as he discusses these aspects of language, in both English and Cree.


Randy Morin nitisihkāson, is from the mistahi sīpīy or Big River First Nation, located in central Saskatchewan on Treaty 6 territory. He lives in Saskatoon with his partner Lindsay Knight (aka Eekwol) and their three children. Randy has a B.A. in Indigenous Studies from the University of Regina and a B.Ed. from the University of Saskatchewan. He is currently working on his Master's from the University of Victoria in Indigenous Language Revitalization, in addition to a lifetime of traditional Plains Cree teachings and knowledge.
