Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Innu-aimun or Montagnais is an Algonquian language spoken by over 11,000 people, called the Innu, in Labrador and Quebec in Eastern Canada. It is a member of the Cree-Montagnais-Naskapi dialect continuum and is spoken in various dialects depending on the community. In recent years, Innu-aimun has had considerable exposure in the popular culture of Canada and France due to the success of the rock music band Kashtin and the later solo careers of its founders Claude McKenzie and Florent Vollant. Widely heard hit songs with Innu-language lyrics have included Ish-kuess, E Uassiuian, Tipatshimun and in particular Akua tuta, which appeared on soundtrack compilations for the popular television series Due South and the documentary Music for The Native Americans.show more
