The course provides an introduction to Ojibwe language and culture. Ojibwe is a Native American language spoken by the Anishinaabe people. Contemporary Anishinabe communities live in several states and Canadian provinces, including Minnesota, North Dakota, Michigan, Wisconsin, Montana, Ontario, and Manitoba. Ojibwe is part of the Algonquian language family and is closely related to languages spoken by tribal communities in the New England region. This course is for students who have no previous knowledge of Ojibwe or Native American history and culture.
