Anishinabemowin: A Way of Seeing the World, Reclaiming My Identity.
Canadian Journal of Native Education, v27 n1 p101-07 2003
The Anishinabe language is alive, and Anishinabe world view is embedded in it. It is important to continue speaking the language because not doing so contributes to language loss and the undermining of the Anishinabe world view. Dictionaries can help in preserving Native languages, but they must be written by Natives from a Native perspective. The oral nature of Aboriginal languages must be kept in mind. (TD)
