This program focuses on creating functionality in the Anishnaabemowin language and preparing students to design, develop and implement community language programs in Aboriginal communities and organizations. Students study the language as a whole; including the history, changes and current issues affecting Anishnaabemowin today. Incorporating the Ojibwe circular world view, students learn to speak the language by first learning about their immediate environment, then progressively expanding outwards to the community; including ceremony and cultural values. Structured activities provided throughout the program outside of class give students the opportunity to practice their speaking skills. Students examine the role and importance of language in the community and how to plan successful, sustainable language programs.
