Waking Up Ojibwe
Seven Generations Education Institute, Rainy River District School Board, and SayITFirst entered into a partnership in 2017 to develop The Ojibwe Language Strategy. The main goal of the strategy is to help put Anishinaabemowin back into the homes of the Anishinaabe people.
In early 2019, the Gigidiziiminaanig committee who advises the team chose to rename the strategy Anishinaabemodaa. Through a series of programs and partnerships the Anishinaabemodaa initiative is focused on providing Anishinaabemowin to all families, learners, and instructors.
