Minnesota History: Building A Legacy

The Ojibwe People's Dictionary is Online

The Ojibwe People's Dictionary, a project funded by a Legacy grant, is now available online at http://ojibwe.lib.umn.edu/.

The Ojibwe People’s Dictionary was established by faculty and students in the Department of American Indian Studies at the University of Minnesota.

From the website: "The Ojibwe People's Dictionary is a searchable, talking Ojibwe-English dictionary that features the voices of Ojibwe speakers. It is also a gateway into the Ojibwe collections at the Minnesota Historical Society. Along with detailed Ojibwe language entries and voices, you will find beautiful cultural items, photographs, and excerpts from relevant historical documents. Whenever possible, we provide examples of documents in the Ojibwe language."
