Ojibwe II

This is an archive of our Ojibwe II class, which is currently in progress spring 2014

We have two section of this class, so for some days we offer videos of both.  The afternoon section is recorded most often, but in some cases we have a morning section (marked gigizheb) as well!

Anyone can view our classes from this page. If you need to download classes, our current ones are available, but you will need to email us for instructions on how to download them.  We have kept copies of our fall 2013 Ojibwe II class on this archive, and they can be found at the bottom of this page. However, we will be removing these from the archive soon because the current classes were created with the most up to date Ojibwe language research and are therefore the most accurate.  If you are just beginning to watch our Ojibwe II archive, please start with the current classes.\

Note: some videos start before class does, and you will have to fast forward to start of class.  Sound does not start until class does!
