Cree Word of the Week: Nov. 14 2017

This week’s word of the week is:

ᐅᒥᓯᒫᐤ (omisimâw)

This word means eldest sister.

I am lucky (or perhaps unlucky) to be the eldest sister to four(ish) sisters. This means that I am the substitute chef and driver whenever my mom has to work. My parents were also the eldest children in their families meaning I am also the oldest cousin.
