Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe Language Preservation Project
Aanjibimaadizing, which means “changing lives” in our Ojibwe language, is operated as a division of the Mille Lacs Band’s Department of Administration.
Through the Aanjibimaadizing Project, 16 first speakers from the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe have teamed with linguists, teachers, and Ojibwemowin (Ojibwe language) experts to create three new books for Ojibwe language and culture learners. Conceived and presented only in Ojibwemowin, the stories reflect a rare authenticity as they transmit cultural values, increase vocabulary, and reinforce identity.
All five books are now available from Amazon and from the Minnesota Historical Society at https://www.mnhs.org/mnhspress/books/….
