The Cree form an aboriginal nation of North America. They range from the Rocky Mountains to the Atlantic Ocean in both Canada and the United States. Their ancestral Cree language was once the most widely spoken in northern North America, but now not all Crees are fluent in it; English or French is more commonly used.

They are the largest group of First Nations in Canada with over 200 000 members. The Cree were known for openness to intertribal marriage. The Metis are a group of mixed Cree and French heritage.

Cree bands are considered First Nations.
