Lillian Traverse from Pinaymootang First Nation has been speaking Anishinabemowin most of her life, but there was a time in her youth when she nearly lost touch with her first language, as she was being teased by other kids for speaking it.

Now, she teaches Anishinabemowin, also known as Ojibway, in the Lakeshore School Division and is helping secure the future of the language for generations to come.

“It’s dying out, but to bring it back and to keep it going is something that is amazing,” Traverse said ahead of a lesson at Ashern Early Years School.

Traverse got started in the division last fall and is at the school five days a week. Her teachings also include introductions to beading and soapstone carving.

“It’s very interesting and exciting; the students are very engaged,” said Karen Carmichael, principal of Ashern Early Years School.
