Need A Naskapi Translation? We Can Help.

Naskapi (also known as the “y” dialect and Iyuw Iyimuun in the Naskapi language) is a dialect spoken by the approximately 1 000 Naskapi people living in the interior of Quebec and Labrador. It is a Cree dialect, and is written using the same syllabics as Eastern Cree. Although it shares many linguistic similarities with the Montagnais language, it still remains a unique and distinct language within its area.
