Welcome to our Online Ojibwe Language Program, where anyone can watch our live or archived classes for free. Archived classes can be found below, along with instructions for viewing. UW-Eau Claire offers two years of Ojibwe Language, and a "Certificate of Ojibwe Language." Ojibwe courses can be used to fulfill the foreign language requirement for a baccalaureate degree. Those who have questions about our program or who wish to take Ojibwe online for college credit should contact our instructor:
Dr. Wendy Makoons Geniusz
We broadcast Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10:00am-10:50am central time, at this Zoom link, and anyone is welcome to join us but due to the high number of online students we have, the public will have muted mics and muted cameras (you can text us on zoom to interact with us):
WE ARE NOT BROADCASTING THURSDAY SEPT 16, 2021!!!
Our last broadcast for the Fall Semester is: Tuesday December 14, 2021
