Coteau Books in the Schools: Batoche
by Kim Morrissey ISBN 0-919926-91
My dearest --
We have a new problem:
The Indian Agent speaks English and Cree
The Indians speak Blackfoot and French
Our MP refuses to comment
Our petitions to appropriate ministers
Were answered by a shipment of dictionaries
Tomorrow the Indians
Begin to learn Cree.
[from Batoche, page 8]
