The course will serve as an introduction to Anishinaabe language and culture. This course is for students who have no previous knowledge of the tribe as well as tribal members interested in learning more about their culture and language. Because Ojibwe is an endangered language, it is of utmost importance that we make sure the language is learned and used. This is a beautiful language with much to teach about living in this place. It deserves to be revitalized for future generations.

After completing AMCULT 222 students should be able to use Ojibwe to:

  • Respond to and initiate simple statements and commands such as greetings and introductions.
  • Understand 250 – 500 words.
  • Express reactions and courtesy phrases.

  • Describe actions, people, places and things using short phrases.
  • Be able to read standardized orthography with correct pronunciation.
  • Recognize key characters and events found in traditional stories.
  • Know the basic chronological history of the Anishinaabe in the U.S. and Southern Ontario.
