Anishinaabemowin – Ojibwe

July 8, 2009 at 10:51 am 2 comments

Continuing with Algonquian languages from the last post, I’d like to point readers to a few pages on Ojibwe. With over 60,000 speakers in the US and Canada, Ojibwe is near top of the healthiest indigenous languages in these two countries.

There are quite a few resources for learning Ojibwe vocabulary and grammar, suprisingly more, it seems, than Cree, Navajo or Central Yup’ik.

Anishinaabemowin where readers will find conversational lessons, links as well as things like verb paradigms.

Red Lake Net News maintains a site with conversations and bilingual stories in Ojibwe. keeps information and links to language camps, and places where Ojibwe is taught. maintains a lot of cultural and linguistic information. Their Language Camp is being held

    Great site. I’m a student of the language, the Minnesota influence, though I originally started learning during some time spent in Michigan. Many of the places, characters in my stories/novels are Ojibwe. I’m hoping to get out to some language conferences this year.

      Thank you for visiting! I wish you a lot of luck in studying Ojibwe. You’re fortunate to live in an area where you might access to native speakers.
