Welcome to the Ojibwemowining Resource Center

In 2011, with funding available through Minnesota Indian Affairs Council and Title III, FDLTCC visioned and created the Ojibwemowining Language and Culture Resource Center.  The Ojibwemowining Resource Center allows students, staff, faculty and community members to have a designated space for smaller group work and gatherings, surrounded by the area’s largest collection of contemporary Ojibwe art immersed in a soundscape fertile with the language of the Anishinaabe. Ojibwemowining hosts numerous art, music, language and cultural workshops including moccasin making, drum circles, beadwork and traditional plant knowledge sharing and more! Stop in and check us out!
