Your site is the best. My husband and I moved out here to New Jersey a couple of years ago and I've been home sick. I was also worried because the Anishinaabemowin that I had learned I started to forget so thank god for you and your website. It's helpful so I can continue to learn but it makes me feel comforted to see and hear the language. It's like a cozy blanket.

Your website.....continues to be excellent. I'm learning my numbers and I read the story "Nanabozho & Animoshak" often. While I never want that story to leave the web I am interested in reading other stories. I love to listen to the flow of the story being read in Anishinaabe after I have read it in english - it's much better in anishinaabe. Keep up the good work!!!
Best Regards, Shirley
I really like your interactive learning site. The programs you use are you able to input your own data into them. I teach the Potawatomi language down in Shawnee,Ok. I figured Odawa and Potawatomi are so close it would be easy to change the program into Potawatomi. I was just curious what you thought.

I just found your website & it's wonderful. Both of my parents are full bloods from Wiky and they decided not to teach me anishnabemowin, so I know very, very little. I'm happy to see a list of words on your website with real audio. I'm eager to learn & I'll soon order the CD's. I just want to say thank you for creating these learning tools!
I love your Anishnaabemowin website. I have been practicing the phone message, perhaps I will master it well enough to record for my home. Keep up the labor of love, and wonderful blessings to you and all the others who are working so steadfastly in preserving our beautiful language....

I was hoping to post http://www.anishinaabemdaa.com/ because I want students to see what is possible with the language and using technology. I like the way that it is interactive and how you have used both male and female and children speaking anishinaabemowin. It is most important to hear it. Especially for those of our people that are away from the reserves where they are not likely to be able to hear it. Kchi Megwetch for all your work on this I think it is really wonderful and I appreciate it very much.Im still learning my language so I pass on the lil wee bit I know and keep trying.

I came across your website which introduces the language and culture of the Anishinaabe people including the Medicine Wheel and the Seven Grandfathers' Teachings. I think your website is very well done and very informative.
Just wanted to let you know I ran across your web site Anishinaabemdaa.com. It is great!!! To be able to hear our language will most certainly help me learn to speak better. Miigwetch for the prayer. It feels so good to pray in our language. Well, just wanted to share I appreciate hearing our language. Most of the ones who helped me learn our language have travelled on.

I am the coordinator at the Saginaw Chippewa Academy at Sag Chip Tribe. I was just on your website and wanted to let you know how awesome I think it is. We will be using it this school year for sure. Teachers and students will benefit from hearing the Language. Great Job!!!
I took some time last evening and reviewed many of the items within your website. I was most impressed with the extent and apparent completeness (although I could not read much of it for some reason - only kidding).
I have been aware for some years of your love for the native languages and how it has been a labor of love for you. You are to be commended for sticking to such an ambitious undertaking when I am sure it has not always been very easy for you.
Best regards for your continued success and may God bless you and your work as He appears to have done so far.
Sincerely, Duane Sanford
I came across your language preservation site and it seems to be a wonderful model and very well researched and thought out. Again, thank you for such a wonderful place for a non-native to visit and learn more of native heritage.

Apologies for my communication in English. Anishinaabe hasn't been spoken in our family for a couple generations now and as such, I have found your website very useful, particularly with respect to the language lessons. So often, language materials offer nothing in the way of grammatical information to accompany word lists and so linguistic recovery is difficult. Congratulations on your remarkable work.
Sincerely, Lorna Fadden
Saa nishin ezhchigeying, aapje gwa nmaamiikwenmin. I really enjoy your CD and your committment in helping preserve the language. YOur website is awesome! Keep up the excellent job.
I am a Member of the Grand Traverse Tribe of Chippewa/Ottawa Indians. A friend of mine sent me a notice about your web site and now we send notes back and forth in my native language. I want to thank you for setting this up so many people. I visit here a lot. Unfortunately my Dad only taught us a few simple phrases. I just wanted to Thank You. Also if you do need volunteers to help at Language Camp this year, I would like to volunteer. Thanks again,
