About Plains Cree

Plains Cree is one of the Algonquian languages of Canada, in the same family as Ojibwe and Mi’kmaq. It is spoken primarily in Alberta and Saskatchewan, but also some in Manitoba and Montana. Depending on the community, age of the speaker, and other factors, Plains Cree is written using either a Roman script or a syllabic script.

About This Translation

This is an ongoing translation which is still under review. The draft was translated by Rev. Dr. Stanley Cuthand, and is being reviewed by a group of Cree speakers based in Saskatoon. So far only the books of Ruth and Mark, and a collection of Psalms, have been published. The book of James is expected to be published by the end of 2014. If you are interested in obtaining a printed copy of these books, please contact the Canadian Bible Society at The published books are printed with syllabic script and Roman script on facing pages, and also come with an audio CD.
