The Mi’gmaq/Mi’kmaq Talking Dictionary Project is developing an Internet resource for the Mi’gmaq/Mi’kmaq language. You can take a look here.
I am particularly fond of the Songs. Native history is important to preserve, including the stories. Take a look at that section as well. Traditional culture is historically conveyed through stories.
Each headword is recorded by a minimum of three speakers. Multiple speakers allow one to hear differences and variations in how a word is pronounced. Each recorded word is used in an accompanying phrase. This permits learners the opportunity to develop the difficult skill of distinguishing individual words when they are spoken in a phrase.
Thus far they have posted over 3500 headwords, a majority of these entries include two to three additional forms. More will be added as they are recorded. Words on the site are considered complete today.
Is this the same as the Mi’gmaq/Mi’kmaq ????
New Observations on North American Origins
Further evidence is given that the Micmac Indian hieroglyphs are at least half Egyptian. The family of tribes to which the Micmacs belong, the Algonquians, were found to have hundreds of Egyptian words in their dialect.
I would be very careful of these types of observations. There are other sites out there that claim the Cherokee are Jewish too – and more. Barry Fell’s assertions have been heavily criticized. Take a look at wiki about him: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barry_Fell
Thanks Roberta point taken. However, David H. Kelley also said, “We need to ask not only what Fell has done wrong in his epigraphy, but also where we have gone wrong as archaeologists in not recognizing such an extensive European presence in the New World.
It would confirm old world presence if we could find some European or African DNA from pre-contact Native burials. So far, none.
