Ojibwe I

BOOZHOO! This is an archive of our Ojibwe I classes currently in progress (Fall 2014). We have two sections, and try to record both each day.  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 Spring 2014  below, so please finish viewing them asap as we are in the process of removing them.   

These videos should be downloadable.  Let us know if you have problems with this.
