Ojibwemodaa – let’s speak Ojibwe

24 May 2012

Loads of activities are scheduled from 21 to 24 June at the Fond du Lac Ojibwe Reservation, and you are invited! And it’s all free (donations accepted).

This is the fourth Annual Ambe, Ojibwemodaa language camp, featuring native speakers, cultural activities and more.

Those camping are welcome to set up on 20 June to be ready for all the activities. In addition to flute making, Ojibwe Jenga and canoe races, there will be an Ojibwe-only zone (crib notes provided!) Lots of other fun things to do, too.

There are many Ojibwe languages known as “Ojibwe.” The one spoken on the Fond du Lac Ojibwe Reservation is also known as Chippewa (ciw).
