“Gaad Wi Faada”
(OUR FATHER in Kriol)
Machu 6:9-13

Gaad wi Faada weh deh op da hevn,
mek wi kip yu naym hoali.
Kohn kohn set op yu kingdom,
ahn mek evribadi pahn ert obay yu
jos laik how evribadi obay yu da hevn.
Pleez gi wi di food weh wi need fi tudeh,
ahn fagiv wi fi aal a di rang ting dehn weh wi du,
jos laik how wee fagiv dehn wan weh du wi ting.
Kip wi weh fahn temtayshan,
ahn sayv wi fahn da eevl wan.

Kriol is the language spoken by many Belizeans, especially the Creole people of Belize. Although it is often perceived as a dialect of English, it is indeed it's own language with grammar and spelling rules. The National Kriol Council of Belize was created to promote the culture and language of the Kriol people of Belize, as well as harmony among all the ethnic groups of Belize. Please visit the website of the National Kriol Council of Belize for lots of good information about the Kriol language and the Creole people.

The Kriol Council has been kind enough to send us the weekly "Weh Wi Ga Fi Seh" column that is usually published in the Reporter.
