Bemidji’s Ojibwe Language Project Featured on Native Report

On Sunday, July 13, Native Report featured a story on Bemidji’s Ojibwe Language Project, with interviews with Rachelle Houle, Anton Treuer and Michael Meuers, who calls the project a testament to Bemijigamaag and the three Indian Nations close by. Hundreds of citizens have joined in making something good happen in Bemidji, Minnesota.

“It’s bridging the culture gap between Native and non-Native people,” points out Stacey Thunder, one of the Native Report hosts.

Meuers, of the Bemidji Ojibwe Language Project, tells host Tadd Johnson how the project started. What started as an idea after a trip to Hawaii and hearing the language be incorporated, the project has now put up more than 150 bilingual signs in Bemidji.

Hear what Meuers, Treuer, executive director of the American Indian Resource Center at Bemidji State University, and Houle, of the Bemidji Ojibwe Language Project have to say about the project's beginnings and where it is now.
