Quote:
"To me, language contains world views and universes and it is rich and it is where we find our heritage. When I develop my projects, I just sit around the kitchen table with my dad and he just talks to me about Cree concepts and I ask him questions about language. And it is not a translation process; it is like a process of trying my best, as not a first-language speaker, to understand the philosophical implications of things."
-- Danis Goulet
