Ojibwe I

BOOZHOO! This is an archive of our Ojibwe I classes currently in progress (Spring 2014).  If you are just starting to learn Ojibwe with us, please start with these classes. They contain the most up to date Ojibwe language research.  If you were already watching our classes, we have kept the links to Ojibwe I 2013 below, so please finish viewing them asap.  Sometimes our stream starts before class does, so you will have to "fast forward" to the start of our class.  Before class starts, there is often no sound available, but the sound will start when the class does.  If you encounter a purple screen, just fast forward and the class will start later on the recording. 

The links appearing on this page are "viewable" only.  We are allowing users to download our current 2014 classes (the most accurate and up to date) but you will need to email us for instructions.
