Each summer during our Eewansaapita camps, we encourage participants to work with their group to present a weather report to their peers. Much like the weather reports we post on Aacimotaatiiyankwi, participants pair images with Myaamia language to describe what they’re experiencing.
Want to try it yourself? All you need is access to a window or outdoors, the Myaamia Online Dictionary website or app, and other materials of your choosing for sharing!
Step 1: Go check out the weather!
Step 2: Search the Myaamia Online Dictionary for weather terms. Here are some common terms:
- ceeliteeki – It is hot weather
- neepanki – It is cold weather
- peehki kiišikahki – It is good weather
- aahsanteeki – It is sunny
- aalahkwahki – It is cloudy
- eelaamhsenki – It is windy
- peetilaanki – It is raining
Step 3: Share your weather report! This can be done however you want. As in the example above, it can be hand drawn images or clip art images like the Aacimotaatiiyankwi weather report posts. Check out some other examples below and then share yours with us on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) using #TaanišiKiišikahki
