Welcome to our Community

Our goal is to promote the use of Ojibwe language resources in the Toronto area and make them easier to find. This guide introduces books, web sites, and other materials in Anishinaabemowin (Ojibwe), encompassing the Ojibwe, Odawa, Chippewa, and Saulteaux languages.

Anishinaabemotaa! Let's use Ojibwe, and bring these rich language resources into our lives. We'd like to see a lot more of them!

This guide has been developed and maintained by Sara McDowell. The content is from "Anishinaabemowin Resources [Connor Pion]," in Kikinowaawiiyemon; holdings of the University of Toronto and Toronto Public Library catalogues; and ongoing research. Kici miikwec to Connor Pion for their language work. See further bibliographies of Anishinaabemowin material under Learning / Bibliographies.

Please feel free to send comments and suggestions regarding the guide, or further resources to be added. 

Miikwec (Thank you) most of all to Alex McKay, for his patience and teachings.

It is our inheritance and responsibility as Anishinaabe people to remember where we come from and to use our teachings everyday.
