Written in the Ojibwe language, these delightful short stories bring to life the tales and traditions of the Ojibwe people while providing essential tools for language learning.
Awesiinyensag presents original stories, told by Anishinaabe elders and written in Ojibwe, that delight readers and language learners with the antics of animals who playfully deal with situations familiar to children in all cultures. Suitable for all ages, this book can be read aloud, assigned to classes, shared at language tables, gifted to elders, and enjoyed by those curious about the language and Ojibwe culture.
Authored by a team of twelve Ojibwe language speakers and richly illustrated by Ojibwe artist Wesley Ballinger, Awesiinyensag was created to encourage learning Anishinaabemowin, the language of Ojibwe people. It is a monolingual text presented only in Anishinaabemowin.
