The Ninen Na Mi’kma’ji’jk CD


Ninen Na Mi’kma’ji’jk is a collection of rhymes and lullabies in the Mi’kmaw language for young children and features traditional songs as well as Mi’kmaq translations of popular nursery rhymes like Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star and Eensy Weensy Spider. The CD and booklet feature fun photos of Mi’kmaq families and their babies.


Ninen Na Mi’kma’ji’jk was created by Read to Me! in partnership with Dr Bernie Francis and CBC. Dr. Francis is a respected authority on the Mi’kmaw language and an accomplished musician. Says Dr Francis, "The earliest introduction of our language to our children is the most precious gift we can give to them. It is they who are the continuation of our culture and the carriers of Mi'kmaw after we are no longer.”
