    This would be much more useful if it were child-friendly
  • No Sound

    Downloaded the app but there is no sound and very limited icons and words. So glad to see that someone has taken the initiative to save a dying language. I will check back in on the app to see if there has been any new updates unless someone has a suggestion on how to fix the sound barrier. Mii-gwech from Minnesota!
  • Decent learning tool

    All words and phrases need to have pronunciation and spelling under English translation. It would help with visuals, spelling and pronunciation. Great starting point though but could use more work.
  • Pretty darn cool!

    My Grandmother is half Ojibwe, but her family moved from Canada to the California before she was born and she grew up in a time where they had to hide their heritage so she was unable to learn her ancestral language; but with this app she has been able to connect to a part of her self she thought she had lost long ago. I want to thank the developers if this app! Now I'm just waiting on an app like this that teaches Mohawk for my grandfather.

  • Ojibwe language app

    This app is easy to navigate, let's you hear the way to pronounce the words & phrases, & is a great learning tool for beginners. However the Ojibwe language differs slightly depending on the band so keep that in mind when using this app. I'd like to see more words & phrases & which tribe or band they're from...
  • Does not work

    Broken links fixed in one day. This kind of service is a good omen. Entire section on language is all broken links. Nothing here to learn if you do not already know their alphabet (which is NOT included.) It is like trying to read Russian w/o knowing that alphabet. Seems to be basic language primer for a child who knows their alphabet but not designed to encourage a child to learn as the child would need to know English to use it and it is not child friendly. Actually, it isn't any more than a list of things that does not work. Needs a lot more thought and programming. The idea is good and could be used to preserve the language as is being done in Alaska with unique tribal languages. Please keep working with this as history needs it. Check with University of Alaska's program for ideas.

    Good start! I didn't realize that this was even out there, I'm Ojibwe and have always wanted to learn to speak and write our language. It would be helpful if you included the spelling/pronunciation along with the audio. Is there any way to make the audio a bit clearer, as some sound a bit tin canny. Otherwise good start and I look forward to more updates and more information about other Ojibwe people and their reservations.
