Waasabiik Ojibwemotaadiwin Immersion Program was founded on the Red Lake reservation in 2014. Our mission is to provide a safe Ojibwemowin learning space for our children while nurturing each child’s intellectual, social, physical and moral development in an academic, Anishinaabeg-rich environment. In doing this, we will create homegrown, confident leaders for the next seven generations grounded in their true inherent identity. Our classroom learning environment focuses on instruction primarily using the Ojibwe language and our outside learning environment focuses on transmission of traditional, cultural knowledge through our own Anishinaabe (Ojibwe people) teachings; what our grandmas and grandpas taught us.
Our Immersion program not only focuses directly on our students but also our Red Lake parents/guardians, families and community. We work hard in developing ways we can be more inclusive to our community in language learning opportunities and we strongly encourage our community to participate in any opportunities forwarded to them by our program.
We are raising money to assist with the following: field trip costs, community engagement events, staff development, student and family incentives, harvesting supplies, etc.
We will leave this fundraiser up until the amount is reached. Please feel free to share our fundraiser and keep it circling. Thank you in advance for your donation!
