Project Overview

The primary goals of this project will be to expand American Indian studies curriculum offerings to include language practice and introduce theories or language development and revitalization to support more college students to fluency in the language and culture. Additionally, this project will develop advanced Ojibwe language to allow intermediate Anishinaabe speakers to become more advanced and fluent in the language. The primary objectives will be to develop a new advanced Anishinaabe Language and culture immersion course for students to be offered in the summer of 2015 and to support three skilled student language learners per year in advancing their skills and assisting beginning learners by facilitating weekly language conversation tables.

Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this grant, we were able to continue our language programming through the grant cycle and had positive results in sustaining language opportunities for students directly involved in language learning. Although we will not be able to offer a language immersion course this summer, we will continue to pursue other opportunities in meeting our ultimate goals.
