Abstract
"A Concise Dictionary of Minnesota Ojibwe is the most up-to-date resource for those interested in the linguistic and cultural heritage of the Anishinaabe, containing more than 7,000 of the most frequently used Ojibwe words.

Acknowledged as one of the three largest Native American languages, Ojibwe is spoken in many local varieties in the Upper Midwest and across Central and Eastern Canada. Minnesota Ojibwe is spoken in Central and Northern Minnesota, and is very similar to the Ojibwe spoken in the Ontario-Minnesota border region, Wisconsin, and Michigan's Upper Peninsula.

Presented in Ojibwe-English and English-Ojibwe sections, this dictionary spells words to reflect their actual pronunciation with a direct match between the letters used and the speech sounds of Ojibwe. Included are many ancient words and meanings as well as language added in the twentieth century. It is an essential reference for all students of Ojibwe culture, history, language, and literature."--Back cover.
