You will be asked to share the name of the family members attending/ages/relationships with each other.

It is possible to begin speaking Anishinaabemowin at any age. It is never too late to learn. We welcome you to join us in starting to learn Anishinaabemowin. This group will be focused on multigenerational learning. We ask you to share your zoom screen with your daughter/son, elder, partner, spouse, or sibling. All youth are required to attend with an adult.

In this class, we will cover the basic information you need to understand the scope of Anishinaabemowin. At the end of the class, you will know how to greet others, introduce yourself in different situations, and continue studying the language. We will cover some of the grammar that is helpful to know including the four types of verbs and the concept of animate and inanimate nouns. We will also focus on learning through storytelling and descriptions of the world around us. A major focus will be learning to recognize the building blocks of the language that can lead to speaking.

“Anishinaabemowin (also called Ojibwemowin, the Ojibwe/Ojibwa language, or Chippewa) is an Indigenous language, with a strong concentration around the Great Lakes. Elders share that the term Anishinaabemowin acknowledges the creation story of the Ojibwe people: “Anishinaabe” means “the spirit that is lowered down from above,” “-mo” refers to expression through speech and “-win” refers to the life energy within, used to do so. Linguists also explain that “-win” is a nominalizer that turns the verb Anishinaabemo (“he/she is speaking the Anishinaabe language”) into a noun”
