David Treuer on NPR's Speaking of Faith Jun. 23rd, 2008 @ 01:47 pm

Listened to a podcast today with one of those super-indians David Treuer. It was a great conversation/interview about the Ojibwe language and the meanings that it conveys and sustains. Thought those of you who are interested in language preservation, or just interested in your languages would like this conversation.

Hello Mar. 23rd, 2008 @ 08:13 pm

I just joined this community, so hello everyone. My son is 1/16th Ojibwe on his father's side. I really want him to be proud of his heritage and learn more about it. Sadly we don't have contact with anybody on his father's side. Does anybody know who I would be able to contact to find out more about his heritage? Does anybody know if you have to have a certain ammount of Native American blood in order to be counted as a Native American? I would love for my son to be able to learn all about his ancestors and even learn about the culture, language, history, and just everything. I don't know how to go about finding which tribe his ancestors were a part of or if he would be allowed to be a part of the tribe, so any help would be great! :-) Thank you!

anyone heard of this? Jan. 3rd, 2008 @ 10:18 pm

Republic of Lakotah / Lakotah Freedom movement

As far as my understanding of it goes, it's headed by Russell Means and I've come across some open letters to him on the net addressing concerns and dissent within the Lakota community itself. Someone in another forum apparently made a phonecall to one reservation's tribal offices to inquire about it and was met with laughter and saying that they didn't know anything about it.
The website shows new official land boundaries.

So... anyone heard about any of this from people in the community itself or any other insights? I'm sure time will just have to tell the outcome of this.

Aaniin niiji-anishinaabedog! I'm writing to update you all from the Anishinaabemowin Teg conference in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. I am sitting here in the middle of it all. For those who don't know, Anishinaabemowin Teg is an annual Anishinaabe language conference. This is the 13th year and it is estimated that there are about 800 attendees (and still no snag. damn!)There are a lot of informative and fun workshops. It's cool because I get to learn from and network with other Anishinaabe language learners, speakers and activists during the day....and indulge my secret love of cheesy country music by night.

There are a lot of eastern Anishinaabeg here, given the location, so it is very interesting for me to hear people speaking so much eastern Ojibwe and Odaawa because it is quite different from the dialect that I speak. There are a lot of people here from manitoulin island, as well as other areas such and walpole island, michigan, etc. There are Anishinaabeg for all over, though, even Potawatomies from Kansas! I was really surprised to see how much I understood, it was pretty cool. By far the best thing, though, is just walking around hearing everyone speaking our language.

Well, that is my update. Giga waabs!
