Designed for first language speakers of Anishinaabemowin, the Teacher's Edition will introduce teachers to Helen Roy's innovative sound-based method. Anishinaabemowin (Anishinaabe language) is one of the most widely spoken native languages in North America. An Algonquin language spoken by Ojibwe (Chippewa), Odawa (Ottawa) and Boodewaadomii (Potawatomi) peoples, Anishinaabemowin is also closely related to Cree and Oji-Cree. Helen Roy currently teaches Anishinaabemowin at Michigan State University. Originally from the Wikwemikong Unceded Indian Reserve in Ontario, Helen Roy has been teaching for over 20 years.
