Sneget – Difficult

Sneget ode mikjéwiwen – This work is difficult

Sneget ne éwawijgéyen shote? – Is it hard for you to read here?

Sneget éwi bamséyék ibe – It will be hard for you all to walk over there

Gi sneget ga wje zhechkéyan – It was difficult what I did

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.
