WELCOME BETA TESTERS!

We are excited to be able to introduce you to this beta version of the latest update to the itwêwina, the online Plains Cree Dictionary.  We have now come to a place where we are seeking the help of Beta Testers (you!) to give us feedback on how well the dictionary is fitting the needs of users as well as help us weed out any lingering glitches.

First things first, we have put together a few short tutorials and to guide you through the different features that the new itwêwina offers. You can view the videos below, or you can view the whole playlist on Youtube. 

Be careful not to get the old legacy itwêwina and the new itwêwina version confused. The newest version of itwêwina can be found at https://itwewina.dev/ or just click the button below. 

The feedback form is also linked below.

Feedback and Issue Reporting

We have put together a reporting form that you can use to report Bugs or issues, offer suggestions for future feature additions, improvements, or give general feedback comments.
