Online Ojibwe Language Community Program

Boozhoo!

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 will be back broadcasting Ojibwe language classes in September 2021.  Before the beginning of the semester, we will post information on this page so you can join us for free.  Please join us then, and have a great summer :-)

Zoom only lets us keep recordings on their cloud for 150 days SOOOOO it is a good idea to download what you want now before it disappears!

 

Boozhoo! Welcome to our Intermediate Ojibwe I Archive of classes. We no longer have recordings of these classes, but we will the next time they are offered. We are hoping to offer Intermediate Ojibwe I again during the 2022-2023 school year BUT doing so will depend on enrollment.  If you are interested in studying Intermediate Ojibwe with us (and paying tuition), please contact us for enrollment information.
