  • This study is a remembering and a regeneration of a specific segment of Cree Indigenous knowledge within Cree communities located along the Battle River in Saskatchewan and Alberta. This asks the question: “What is the Indigenous knowledge of the Battle River Cree warrior?” and is based on personal experiences of the researcher and interviews with Cree traditional knowledge teachers from Battle River Cree communities. The research processes were carried out with adherence to traditional Cree ways of obtaining knowledge. Through discussions and analyses of available data, and supported by two Indigenous knowledge holders, the researcher develops the work to demonstrate the connections between ancient Cree knowledge and the formation of a warrior identity. This works and then expands this to include a brief discussion of the traditional ways that warriors were and continue to be perceived within the context of battle River Cree communities.
