I will try using Ojibwe here. I only know how to speak Ojibwe a little bit. My teachers have been Delores Wakefield, Collins OakGrove, Tony Treuer, Pebaamibines Dennis Jones, Gwayakogaabow Rick Gresczyk, Naawigiizis Jim Clark, Tobasonakwut Peter Kelly, Naabekwaa Adrian Liberty, David Bissonette, Waawaakeyaash Keller Paap, Nancy Jones, Larry “Amik” Smallwood, and Ojibwemowin Zagaswe’iding in Minneapolis.
Some of the materials I post here will be recordings of materials posted by other sources, such as the White Earth Tribal and Community College Ojibwe Language Program.
Other materials are drawn from texts produced by Rick Greszcyk and The Oshkaabewis Native Journal.
Learning the underlying rules of any language will help you speak or write about more concepts and objects in the universe, because once you know the rules you can take a root word and inflect it in many different ways, thereby getting more and more precise and expressive in your language.
