The Michif Language

Description

“Michif is classified as a mixed language: it combines Plains Cree and Métis French*, with some words borrowed from English and other languages such as Ojibwe and Assiniboine. It developed during the 19th century among descendents of First Nations women, mainly from the Cree, Nakota and Ojibwe, and fur traders of European ancestry, especially of French and Scottish origin.” Cited from Omniglot at https://www.omniglot.com/writing/michif.htm
