Nodagwze o nemosh zagech – That dog is being noisy outside

Kyét nam nodagwzik gi gazhoyek égi migadiwat bédbekok – Wow those cats were really noisy as they fought all last night!

Ngi nodages wnago égi mikchéwiyan – I was being noisy yesterday when I was working

Gégo she nodagwzeken – Stop being so noisy

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.
