That`s good thanks. But please remember that Cree is not the only case, and
its far from the "worse" (for lack of a better term) language in that optic.

On the Cree-
I can put this question out in the next newsletter of the *Society for
the Study of the Indigenous Languages of the Americas*. One might
contact: Arok Wolvengrey at the First Nations University of Canada.
Once a language has reached a point at which local speakers cannot agree
on the meaning of its writing system, or the language never acquired an
accepted and integrated writing system, challenges abound for getting a
growing encyclopedia going in the language.
Linguists do a great job of understanding indigenous languages: use,
disuse, structure, and endangerment, but we need to try to bridge the gap
between linguists' knowledge and tech-savvy, open-source communities.
