Owls See Clearly At Night (Lii Yiiboo Nayaapiwak Lii Swer): A Michif Alphabet (L'Alfabet Di Michif)
Format: Hardcover
Text Content Territories: Indigenous Canadian; Métis;
Grade Levels: Preschool; Kindergarten; 1; 2; 3;

This picture book is a small glimpse, from A to Z, of some of the sights and sounds of the Michif language and its speakers. The language of the Métis, Michif is a combination of French and Cree with a trace of other regional languages. Once spoken by thousands of people across the prairies of Canada and the northern United States, Michif is now so little spoken that it might disappear within a generation. This alphabet book is part of a resurgence to celebrate and preserve the traditions of the Métis people. Here Michif and English words combine with images from Métis culture to introduce all generations to the unique Michif language. The book even includes a brief introduction to the language's history, a pronunciation guide, and a list of references for those interested in learning more about Michif.
