Reclaiming Our Territory, Word by Word: Grassroots Language Teaching is a step-by-step guide to teaching any language. No teaching experience required. Use the activities and games to get students interested in learning a language, with examples from the Ojibwe language. Author Patricia Ningewance draws from her 40 years of teaching Ojibwe to share strategies that work for teaching language.

This book of lesson plans is designed to help anyone who is fluent to teach family and friends to learn oral language in an informal setting. A person does not have to know the grammar of his/her language nor be literate in it. Fluent Indigenous Language speakers may be gone in 20 years so we must teach the language to the next generation. Lesson plans include fun games and activities to keep students engaged. Young people are learning their languages to gain a sense of identity and a link to their family and community. Our languages contain our unique worldview and our connection to the earth. Our languages must survive.
