Nimkii Aazhibikong Language Camp



Nimkii Aazhibikong is an Ojibway language immersion camp for youth that is working towards producing the next generation of fluent speakers on the land. We are a grassroots bunch of folks who are doing this without government funding. Winter is going to approach soon and we are determined to prepare for Winter Camp at Nimkii Aazhibikong. We cannot afford to take the winter off with our language efforts. The Elders want us to keep going. The youth also want to keep going. We see the absolute importance of not giving up and going full force ahead into the ice and snow.

This campaign is to raise funds to build and winterize our language cabin and to build two small cabins for Elders Mary Wemigwans and Elder Linda Toulouse, who are volunteering all their time to be at camp full time to help us and the young people learn. These grandmas will be the first ones to get cabins at Nimkii Aazhibikong.

Together we can do this, but we can't do it without support from you. Our prayer is strong. #WeGotThis

We also accept direct donations to Onaman Collective via etransfer or paypal to onamancollective (at) gmail (dot) com, or by mail to Onaman Collective, P.O. Box 215, Serpent River First Nation, ON, P0P 1B0.
