Niskadémget – It is stormy

Gi niskadémget wnago – It was stormy yesterday

Niskadémget ngom – It is stormy today

Niskadémget shote, naké bbonimget ibe – It’s stormy here, but it’s snowing over there

Cho gi niskadémsi wnago shote – No, it wasn’t stormy here yesterday

Gi nshonadanmet – The wind was blowing in every direction

I was born on Powers Bluff in Wood County, Wisconsin, into a traditional community of Neshnabek. I was raised speaking only native languages, and learned to speak English upon entering school at the age of 6. As of this writing, I am one of 5 remaining Heritage Fluent Speakers of Potawatomi.
