Ojibwe Bilingual K-4 Book Series


We acknowledge the financial support of the Government of Canada to develop 15 books to support the Ojibwe bilingual program at Riverbend School. More importantly, we thank Seven Oaks School Division and its leadership for demonstrating commitment to Indigenous language revitalization. The Ojibwe bilingual program was first launched in September 2016 from Kindergarten to Grade 3 and will grow a grade level each consecutive year. A biningual program is defined here as dual language education where Ojibwe is used up to 50% of academic instruction during the school day.

The double vowel system is reflected throughout this series. We acknowledge the contribution each person has made in the development of these books.

  • Gloria Barker, Riverbend Ojibwe Language Teacher
  • Kim Guimond, Riverbend Ojibwe Language Teacher
  • Jo-Anne Wright, Riverbend Ojibwe Language Teacher
  • Riverbend School Administration
  • Rebecca Chartrand, (Former) Division Lead Aboriginal Education, Seven Oaks School Division
  • Audrey Guiboche, Ojibwe Language Curriculum Developer
  • Dwayne Bird, Debinan Strategy and Creative
  • Ainsley Fontain, Culture and Language Coordinator
  • Shirley Roache, Ojibwe Program Elder in Resident

These books are dedicated to those that lost their language and those that aspire to learn Anishinaabemowin. These books are available for free below to anyone worldwide.  This is our contribution to the preservation and restoration of Anishinaabemowin (Ojibwe/Salteaux).
