keešaakosita: an introduction to Algonquian grammar

Schedule: Wednesday, October 11, 2023, 09:00 AM – 05:00 PM
Location: The Katzman Lounge
Instructors: Ashley Glassburn

Come learn the very basics of Algonquian Grammars. This full day workshop is designed for folks who know just enough about Indigenous languages that they appreciate that they don’t really know anything about them at all. In this work-in-progress workshop we will be learning with Eastern Myaamia and Plains Cree (both Algonquian languages) to explore commonalities of Algonquian grammar. We will explore nouns, simple descriptive verbs, and how to navigate Algonquian dictionaries.

This in-person workshop is facilitated by Dr. Ashley Glassburn (Miami Nation of Indians of Indiana) who has been teaching Myaamia since 2008 and ran a series of multi-lingual Algonquian workshops from 2015-2017. This workshop is designed for the express purpose for supporting a group of Plains Cree language learners. Come if you are ready to spend a day learning Algonquian grammar in a cooperative learning community.

A light breakfast and lunch will be provided.
