To learn Anishinaabemowin (Ojibwe language) you must also learn the culture. This has become more accessible through the evolution of the internet. This has been especially beneficial to people that have been disconnected from their families/communities. To get the most out of your learning journey reach out to your local Indigenous communities and local Friendship Centres if you are feeling disconnected. Try to get involved as much as possible in local/online Indigneous events. The more you surround yourself with people and teachings the more you will thrive. Remember to be patient with yourself it takes a lot of time. There is so much to know you can never know it all. I have actively been on this journey for 15 years and will be forever.
