Waking Up Ojibwe – Anishinaabemodaa

The goal of the Anishinaabemodaa initiative is to bring Anishinaabemowin back into the homes of the Anishinaabe people. One way of achieving this goal is to build Anishinaabemowin knowledge and fluency among children ages 0-6. This site offers language learning support and educational resources to child care centres, community partners, families, and learners so they can incorporate Anishinaabemowin into their programming and daily routines. The aim is to engage parents, families, and anyone interested in learning Anishinaabemowin with their family and using language in their homes.
These resources are suitable for any new learner.
