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!

Our Mission

Ojibwemowining Resource Center’s mission is to empower and engage people to share stories that celebrate our cultures, inspire our communities and honor the Anishinaabe.


    Ojibwe language has been called by many names including Anishinaabemowin, Ojibwe, Ojibway, Ojibwa, Southwestern Chippewa, and Chippewa. It is a Central Algonquian language spoken by the Anishinaabe. It is centered around the Great Lakes homeland of the Ojibwe people. Find resources here.
