The Anishinabek Nation Anishinaabemowin Department supports the resolutions put forward by the Anishinabek Nation Chiefs-in-Assembly regarding language retention and acquisition. Anishinaabemowin is the official language of the Anishinabek Nation as declared in Chi-Naaknigewin. The Anishinaabemowin Commissioner and the Enkiitmajig Wii-aabiziitoong Anishinaabemowin committee have been developed to support the revitalization, maintenance and protection of Anishinaabemowin.

Weweni kendiman gda nawewinaa – Knowledge of our language
