Media for Michif and Cree
YouTube is proving to be an excellent resource for language learning videos as the public has access to uploading their own videos and contributing to the body of knowledge. There are a significant number of videos uploaded that are specifically for learning the Michif language. These range from short vocabulary videos to longer recorded conversations. There are two channels in particular, Learnmichif and Michifspeaker that provide a selection of recorded interviews, conversations and lessons in Michif.
