A new dictionary is always a kind of benchmark, reflecting current thinking on topics in subtle ways. The Alberta Elders' Cree Dictionary has been hailed as groundbreaking, and it has accumulated a number of awards. Yet in the 25 years of it's preparation, many religious issues had to be negotiated, since translation is often a reflection of the culture of the day. This article analyzes the principal problems in religion wrestled with in the Dictionary, and indicates how debates within the religion academy have impacted on the translation. The article ends with some observations on the contribution that Cree makes to current debates in Religious Studies.
