I'm taking my selection very seriously.

True, but I'd much rather have too many choices than not many. :)

In any case, my choice was made pretty easy by the fact that I hear Ojibwe on local radio and, if I'm lucky, get to actually try it out with a few live human beings in the area. My choice would be more difficult were those opportunities not present, I suppose.

Yes, I shouldn't complain so much. :mrgreen:

I was looking for something more local with Potawatomi; they are the only tribe I ever see around here (you can tell because they ride in a van that says their potawatomi tribe name on it :P). But I would rather choose a language that I feel like I can advance more in, if I so choose. Ojibwe people are in Michigan too, but I'd never see them. They are up farther north.

It's probably been posted, but figure this might be of some use to y'all.

Oh yeah, and I kind of want to learn Ojibwe. G-ddammit.

Not that I'm aware of, but I have know about the link. I suppose it's about time it made it's way here. :P

Plenty of resources out there for Ojibwe. Lately (and maybe this is just me, but) it seems a lot of people are getting interested in Ojibwe. :hmm:

Dette er nemlig Formelen, som beskriver Selvets Tilstand, naar Fortvivlelsen ganske er udryddet: i at forholde sig til sig selv, og i at ville være sig selv grunder Selvet gjennemsigtigt i den Magt, som satte det. (This is namely the formula, that describes the condition of the self, when despair is completely eradicated: by relating itself to itself, and by willing to be itself, the self is grounded transparently in the power which constituted it) (Søren Kierkegaard, The sickness unto death)

I think I have qenaga.org on the main list already. Thanks none the less. :)


I've just found this:
http://haidalanguage.blogspot.com/
Which has some pretty neat goodies. I may just end up learning Haida after all.


(I'll add it to the main list when I'm actually on my computer.)

The U of Toronto Cayuga dictionary has been printed in paperback and with well over half the price knocked off! Happy day! I've finally bought a copy after years of hoping to save up enough. It's a great day for us amateur Iroquoianists. :D :D :D

Now, if only they'd do the same for their other Iroquois dictionaries. Or at least the Oneida one. :P

I've been trying my hand at Navajo lately, and Navajo Made Easy by Ira W. Goossen is by far the most helpful thing I've found. All I need is an actual English-Navajo dictionary that doesn't only have, like, 1,000 words, and I'll be set. One's coming from the library now.

I can't say I have ever seen that book. I have heard of it, but nothing more.

At any rate, I'm glad to hear you're making progress with it, and hope you have fun! :D

I like this dictionary: The Navaho Language

Księżycowy, would you recommend Kanyen'keha Tewatati? It's pretty cheap on Amazon and I might like to get it. :D Also, I contacted my library to see about getting Nancy Bonvillain's Mohawk dictionary through ILL, so we'll see how that goes.

I suppose that would depend on your expectations in learning Mohawk. If you want to get a feel for it and learn a few things, yes. For a serious study of the language, not so much.

Oh! Sorry I didn't see this. Slipped under my radar somehow...

Could you give me an idea of what it's like? Is it very repetitive and doesn't teach much? I assume it's like those textbooks that are not meant at all for serious learners like ourselves and isn't really helpful.

Well, if I can get Nancy Bonvillain's dictionary through ILL and maybe the grammar by the same author, I think I'd be relatively set for resources, IF I decide to learn it.

i remember it being more like a simple reference grammar, but let me pull my copy out, just to be sure. Maybe I'll try posting a pic or two later.

OK, thanks. :) If you could post a couple pictures so I could get an idea that'd be awesome.

Very good dictionary with lots of examples, different word forms, and tones(!!!).

Decent good word list with many entries having recordings.
