About Us

Chippewas of the Thames culture and language program is committed to bringing our language back to our community. This is why we developed a language declaration. 

Language Strategy

“In the past few decades, Deshkan Ziibiing has experienced a growing social movement of commitment to resurging Anishinaabe aadziwin, our Anishinaabe way of being (Jewell, 2018; Kechego, 2010). Throughout this time, Deshkan Ziibiing established its commitment to reclaiming Anishinaabemowin and Anishinaabe practices (e.g. ceremonial/spiritual work, cultural work, land-based activity) for future generations.”
