During their June 12-14 annual Grand Council Assembly, the Chiefs endorsed a resolution declaring that the official language of the Anishinabek Nation is Anishinaabe-mowin, or the Ojibwe language.
Quote:
"This is a historic decision for our First Nations, and a significant step in coming out from under colonial rule and restoring our own Nationhood," said John Beaucage...
"Our language is sacred, and protecting and restoring it is a priority for our Chiefs," said Beaucage. "It is the vision of this official language policy that our people will once again think in Anishinaabe-mowin by ensuring that Ojibwe is once again the language of our ceremonies, our gatherings, and our working life."
I am happy to hear this news.
