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.
Ojibwemowin.com keeps information and links to language camps, and places where Ojibwe is taught.

The Hannahville Potawatomi Indian Community in Wilson, Michigan has set up a website for the severely endangered Algonquian language, Potawatomi. This site is in addition to the language center they operate, a brochure for which can be found here.
