SAULT STE. MARIE – A group of adult Anishinaabemowin learners have convinced their teacher to give them more homework.

After completion of a series of eight language immersion sessions at Algoma University, instructor Barbara Nolan agreed to provide a follow-up session this fall. Students will provide pictures and stories of everyday activities  for discussions in  Anishinaabemowin. The group is exploring options for developing  a continuing immersion program.

“The language is part of us,” said Marion Seymour, “It makes us whole.”

An open meeting to discuss potential Nishinaabe Language training was scheduled for July 18th, 9:30 a.m. at Algoma University Student Lounge
