The 5th Annual Ojibwe Language Symposium is free to everyone, and registration is open through the start of the event on Friday, February 2. Like previous years, the event will offer two strands of language learning: an emergent level for beginning speakers, and an immersive level for practitioners, and fluent speakers.
“The Ojibwe Language Symposium is a collaborative event hosted by the Fond du Lac Band and Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College,” shared Roxanne DeLille, FDLTCC Dean of Indigenous and Academic Affairs, “The event highlights local and regional language restoration and revitalization efforts by bringing in master and apprentice language warriors with the most up-to-date language practices and resources.”
Keynote presenters for the 5th Annual Ojibwe Language Symposium include: Niibaa-gaabaw (Dave Aubid), Waawaakeyaash (Keller Paap), Miigizi, Michael D. Sullivan Sr., PhD., and Westin Sutherland.
