Nedwabdan i zhonyawgemek – I’m looking for the bank

Zhonyawgemek ne gwi zhya – Will you go to the bank?

Zhonyawgemek ne gwi zhyam – Will y’all go to the bank?

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.
