Interested in Learning Ojibwe?

We are thrilled to share the work of Native-as-a-Second Language teacher, Tory Fisher, who has created this online resource to help share the Ojibwe language with our community. Tory's resource is particularly noteworthy because he collaborated with Nbisiing Gchi-nishnaabeg (Nipissing First Nation Elders) and First Language Speakers to capture the Nbisiing Dialect. Miigwech for all of your hard work Tory!
