Simple Commands in Woodland Cree

I did some audio for simple commands; some people have asked for these basic words and hopefully this post will answer their questions.

pihtokī – come inside (as in “come inside the house” or “come indoors”)

awas – go away

āstam – come here

kīwī – go home

api – sit down

pasikō – get up

itwī – say

kāwitha – do not, or don’t

aswīthihta – be careful
