About Language Project

The information contained in this section attempts to communicate the importance of language and to highlight critical points in our journey towards the reclamation of our language and Nishnaabe being.

Firstly, our Chief and Council share with you our vision, our hopes, our dreams, and our strategies that represent the collective direction obtained from our elders and community. Secondly, we are pleased also to provide you with the perspectives of two individuals who have made significant contributions to the revitalization of our Nishnaabe culture.

We recognize the efforts of our previous leaders and support the continuation of the vision set by them. Miigwech Chief Roy, Chief Dan, and Chief Art. Our elected leaders for the 2013 – 2015 term have continued with this vision. Special thanks to Chief Duncan and Council members Doris, Simone, Bonnie, Sean, Daniel, Arnold, Art, Herb, and Dave, for allowing themselves to be recorded sharing our story. We also want to thank Jason Burton for putting this video together. And, to Dave and Elmer: Miigwech for your guidance in our journey.
