Forest asked Wren why she likes speaking Anishinaabemowin, and Wren replied, “Because when I was born, I was Native American, and it makes my Elders in the sky happy.”
Wren and her family live in Charlevoix County, Michigan.
“I’m trying to make language a priority because we know that she has no fear and can learn it easiest now. She has the Marco Polo app so she can talk only in Anishinaabemowinwith other children,” Forest shared.
Forest and Wren are participating in Isadore Toulouse’s online classes every day at 10:00 am and 6:00 pm (CST) at https://www.facebook.com/OnlineAnishinaabemowin/.
Today, there is a special class at 10:00 am to honor Isadore for his offerings of free classes. Everyone is welcome to join!
