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!

    December 13 FDLTCC LIVE!!!!!! This is a performing arts “variety” showcase unique to our campus! We ask students, staff and faculty to come show their stuff… singing, playing, speaking, acting, dancing, yo-yoing, whatever! We video record the performance and upload the video to our Vimeo page. Students can use that video as a reference for other shows and further their performing opportunities… or just track their development over the years. We will be in the FDLTCC Auditorium (room 195) on our campus, in the evening. There will be food, refreshments and just a good time supporting each other in the best way.
