Ojibwe - Anishinaabemowin

The Ojibwe Language is spoken in Canada and a few northern states in the U.S. The language is known by various names such as Chippewa, Saulteaux, Algonkin and others, however, it is known as Anishinaabemowin to its' speakers. Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario has some of the most fluent speakers of the language and boasts many new speakers over other Indigenous languages in Canada and U.S.

Historically the language is written using syllabics and is still honoured to this day, however today the language is predominately written using roman orthography (Source: Indigenous Languages of Manitoba)
