Shelf-Promotion: Famed Novelist Louise Erdrich's Bookstore Stocks Great Native Books

Stephanie Woodard / Indian Country Today Media
Notable among the indigenous-language materials are three books in Ojibwe (with more to come) from Wiigwaas Press, run by Erdrich and her sister Heid, a poet and curator of Native American fine art. Most recently, the press published the engaging word-and-phrase book Daga Anishinaabemodaa (or Let’s Speak Ojibwe), by Pebaamibines/Dennis Jones, Nigigoonsiminikaaning First Nation and a University of Minnesota Ojibwe-language instructor.
