Anishinaabemowin Immersion

This language learning kit was created in collaboration with Akinoomoshin Wigwam, and the MICEC Language Development Team. It is designed to be a functional take-home resource for language teachers and learners that is accessible for both online and in-person learning.

This kit is for intermediate learners of any age and especially kids. Intermediate learners know basic Anishinaabemowin words or phrases and are learning to use the language in conversation. They are learning to understand and respond to fluent speakers without relying on English. The activities in this kit are designed to be fun, engaging and age appropriate.

Akinoomoshin Wiigwam in Atikameksheng Anishinawebek First Nation is a not for profit organization incorporated in 2017. Akinoomoshin teaching lodge is focused on learning from the land and the language. Akinoomoshin and the Elders and Knowledge Holders they work with, provide Anishinaabe centred education to young learners, nurturing teaching and learning through immersion in Anishinaabemowin and Anishinaaabe ways of waadiziwin (being), izhichigewin (doing), inendamonwin (thinking) and kendaasowin (knowing). Together they have been working to develop an Anishinaabemowin immersion education model for early and elementary aged learners.
