Traditional Teachings

The Project

The Iyiyiuwayihtimuwin / Iinuuweyhtamuwin – Elder and Traditional Knowledge Keeper Teachings Video Project was designed to capture, preserve, and create a collection of traditional teachings of Cree elders from nine Cree communities in northern Quebec. 

The videos of Elders and Knowledge Keepers are used as an educational tool for classrooms and passed down from generation to generation.

The traditional teachings are available to Eeyou Istchee and the rest of the world.
