A Day in the Life at Niigaane

Leslie Harper, Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe, was born and raised in the Cass
Lake community of the Leech Lake Reservation. Ms. Harper is a founder of the
Niigaane Ojibwemowin Immersion School, which is located in north-central
Minnesota. Leslie has been working for over a decade to learn to speak
Ojibwe well, and she is proud to say that her son is one of the first
children in several decades in the Leech Lake community to speak Ojibwe as a
First Language.

 Leslie Harper will present an overview of the language revitalization
activities from the Niigaane Ojibwemowin Immersion School on Leech Lake. Ways
in which the communities of the Leech Lake area are recovering Ojibwean
ideals of good living, from the formation of a school site with Elder-led
Teaching teams, through daily activities in each wadiswan (nest), family
participants’ involvement in the school, curriculum creation of items
necessary to the Ojibwemowin immersion environment, and general leadership,
decision-making, and policy issues will be covered.
