Ojibwe is both historically and presently one of the most prominent of the hundreds of aboriginal languages of North America. It is spoken throughout the Great Lakes region of the United States including in six First Nations communities in Wisconsin and over a vast region of Canada. It is a language deeply rooted in the Great Lakes, with rich traditions intimately tied to our environment such as wild ricing, maple sugaring, canoe-making, and incomparable knowledge of regional plants and animals. Its oral traditional literature is famous for its artfulness and insight.
