About Ojibwe

Ojibwe is one of the Algonquian languages of Canada, in the same family as Cree and Mi’kmaq. It is spoken in Ontario and Manitoba, as well as Minnesota, but the dialect in this translation is from northwestern Ontario. Depending on the community, age of the speaker, and other factors, Ojibwe is written using either a Roman script or a syllabic script.
