    Reception

    Linguist András Kornai has classified Cree Wikipedia as a "digital heritage language" project, meaning it is useful for language preservation and study, but it is not a space where native speakers communicate actively in Cree. Others, such as Andrew Dalby, suggest that Wikipedias in indigenous American languages are likely to increase, and that the presence of Wikipedia in heritage languages may contribute to continuing use of those languages.
