Title: nikik ê-itâcimikosit - A story about an otter

Speaker: Xavier Sutherland

Dialect: Swampy Cree (n dialect)

Age Level: 6


Xavier, the narrator, used to have an otter as a pet. He slept at night and was up early in the morning but returned to bed in the afternoon. In winter, his family would cut two holes in the ice and tie a string around the otter's paw. The otter dove into one hole and came out the other, effectively placing the string for the net under the ice.
