Orality in Northern Cree Indigenous Worlds.
Weber-Pillwax, Cora
Canadian Journal of Native Education, v25 n2 p149-65 2001
Examines the importance and centrality of orality, rather than literacy, in the shared lives of the Cree of northern Alberta. Discusses orality consciousness related to the practice of shared memories and personal and communal healing during the "dance of the ancestors" or "ghost dance." Includes a short history of the Cree people and their westward expansion across Canada. (SV)
