This is a student driven, beginner/intermediate course of the Ojibwe grammar continuing from Ojibwe Grammar l class, in an Indigenous pedagogy space. Student driven means, students are encouraged to ask questions to drive the curriculum to accommodate the students’ learning interests. Indigenous pedagogy means the learning is co-created by all. “Gikinoo’amaading”, the Ojibwe cultural concept of learning means “learning from one another.” Another Indigenous aspect of learning is that there are no “mistakes”. There are only teachings (learnings from so called ‘mistakes’).  In an Indigenous pedagogy, students support one another mutually (wiidookodaading). There is no competition or hierarchy in the learning environment. Each weekly class will consist of a preview of the last lesson’s concepts, introduction of new concepts, practice, and questions from students.


Miigwech Ojibwemo yan!

Thank you for speaking Ojibwe!

HND VALUE STATEMENT

Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this {article, book, exhibition, film, program, database, report, Web resource}, do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for the Humanities or Humanities North Dakota. However, in an increasingly polarized world, we at Humanities North Dakota believe that being open-minded is necessary to thinking critically and rationally. Therefore our programs and classes reflect our own open-mindedness in the inquiry, seeking, and acquiring of scholars to speak at our events and teach classes for our Public University. To that end, we encourage our participants to join us in stepping outside our comfort zones and considering other perspectives and ideas by being open-minded while attending HND events featuring scholars who hold a variety of opinions, some being opposite of our own held beliefs.
