Ibe – There

Nde zhya ibe émawjeshnowat – I am going over there where they are gathering

Ngi zhya ibe égi mawjeshnowat – I went over there where they gathered

Wéni je o kwé éjibdebet ibe? – Who is that woman sitting there?

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.
