Noongom Wenishinaabemojig (Today’s Speakers of Anishinaabemowin)

Welcome to Ojibwe.net. This site represents many things, most of all, it is evidence that Anishinaabemowin is alive and well. A living language must be spoken fluently and used creatively. We have created this cyber space so that the ancient sounds are not lost and can be connected to anyone willing to listen, learn, and labor with us in the effort to maintain Anishinaabemowin.
