Ojibwe Language Program

Children Books


The Bad River Head Start, with funding from the Wisconsin DPI, were given the opportunity to produce and publish books for use in their immersion classrooms. 

The stories were written by the Bad River Language Trainees, and highlight people and places in Bad River. 

Our dream is that all of our children will grow up hearing and speaking our language, Ojibwemowin.
