A Note from the Moccasin Telegraph, from Up North

On February 3rd for the Vancouver VS Calgary game, the (Canadian) National Anthem will be sung in Cree, by Akina Shirt, a 12 year old girl from Saddle Lake First Nation.

It is the first time the anthem will be sung in another language besides English and French.

Can you imagine something like this happening in the lower 48?

I will imagine it; no matter how implausible. I still want to learn a language that is actually indigenous to this land I live with but really just on.

Well, as a matter of fact, we do that here in Cherokee at our soccer games.
