Ojibway Language

Students listening to Ojibway instruction

Kenora Catholic is proud to offer Ojibway Language Studies at St. Louis School, Pope John Paul II School, and St. Thomas Aquinas High School. Starting in the fall of 2018 our board will have three Ojibway language facilitators working out of St. Louis School, Pope John Paul II and St. John School. The facilitators are fluent in the Ojibway language (Anishinabemowiin) and work with the Ojibway language teachers and students.

At St. Thomas Aquinas High School, students can take Ojibway all the way through from Grade 7 to 12. In 2017, St. Thomas Aquinas students helped create an app in the local dialect of the Treaty #3 area. The project was a collaboration between students, elders, teacher Sheila White and Ogoki Learning Inc. The App is available as a free resource to help people learn the local dialect of the Anishinaabemowin language, culture and traditions. It’s the only one of its kind in the local dialect of the Treaty #3 area

Kenora Catholic’s Anishinaabe Omiinigoziiwin language App is free to download at the App Store by searching ‘Niin.’

The App’s name Anishinaabe Omiinigoziiwin is translated to mean the Anishinaabe language is a gift that we were given.
