Q: I would like to know if anyone there could possibly
assist me on some words I
see/hear in some songs.. I will list them below...
They come from an album
of a Chippewa Cree Woman. I hope the words are spelt
close enough to find
the meaning of them... if there is one..
Mahe'kun... Muskwa... Moshom
A: "Mahe'kun" is probably Mahihkan, wolf. "Muskwa" is
probably Maskwa, bear. "Moshom" is less clear, there
are a few different words that could be. Mosom,
grandfather, is probably the likeliest candidate, but
we'd need to hear the context to know for sure.
Hope that helps, have a nice day!
