It is a beautiful day here today for us and we are about to start another segment of our journey teaching and sharing this language. We are currently working on a lexical piece on the Potawatomi language which now seems like an ever expanding work. In the beginning, we thought to publish and comment on some 90 to 100,000 words we had gleaned from Don’s notes, but quickly found that we had to keep expanding what we thought we understood. It is a work in progress for sure.

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.
