Anishinaabemowin and Culture are a vital part of who we are as Anishinaabek.  This is our identity and the two cannot be separated.  Our Culture and Language have been oral teachings that have been brought down from generations past.  It is of utmost importance today that those who are still knowledgeable and those who are presently learning our Language and Culture, must continue on the teachings for generations to come through oral, written, visual aids, necessary so these teachings will continue on.
