MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A new tool to preserve the culture of the Ojibwe people is now online.

The University of Minnesota’s American Indian Studies department launched an online Ojibwe-English dictionary website.

The Ojibwe People’s Dictionary has 30,000 words and it’s continuing to grow.

There are also videos on the website, where you can hear native Ojibwe speakers.

The goal of the website is to support the history of the language and encourage new speakers.

    The recession isn’t over and we discover the U of M is spending money on this?
    Our grandkids will spit in our faces for this, considering they’ll be paying for our ‘nice to haves, but can’t affords’. Shame on us. We can tax all the millionsaies but it still make a dent in the debt – cut, cut, cut. Add up all these little nonsensical programs and you’ll get a big figure – cut these and cut all subsidies and deductions now. I want my grandkids to think better of me.
