- To present a public service announcement combined with a traditional Ojibwe story.
- Present a traditional Ojibwe story in a visual form in the intended language.
- Raise awareness about the importance of preserving Native languages
- Discuss issues of translating between English and Ojibwe alphabet and grammar.
- Make the video informative and enjoyable to an Ojibwe-speaking audience, and try to make expressive visuals for an English-speaking audience.
We obtained a copy of Living Our Language by Anton Treuer, which contains a number of traditional Ojibwe stories. We are going to create an audio/visual representation of a story from this anthology.
For the next portion of our project, we are going to choose a specific story to represent and decide on the method of filming.
Sonny will work on the introduction and use his knowledge of grammar and the alphabet to explain why the preservation of the Ojibwe language is essential.
