My name is Jasmine Spence and I am the creator of this app. I am Cree from Cross Lake, MB. aka Pimicikamak. We use the 'n' dialect. I am not a linguist, an expert on the language, or even fluent. In fact I built this app for myself as a way to improve my fluency, and decided to share it with you. Most of the content comes from my granny Doreen Apetagon's lesson materials which she teaches at the school. .
