Project: “Community and Collaboration: Ojibwe Language Documentation and Revitalization”

Hermes collaborated with Ojibwe language teacher Dennis Jones, implementing the use of multimedia software in his classroom, and with Lucia Bonnaci, who is planning the first Ojibwe immersion camp based on the Concordia Language Schools model. She gave two public lectures, one for “Diversity Dialogues” sponsored by Curriculum and Instruction, Second Languages and Cultures, and one at the request of indigenous-language teachers on the multimedia tool that her team has developed. She began a new research project with Kendall King (Curriculum and Instruction), researching how Native American Twin Cities families use the software “Ojibwemodaa” in their homes. Finally, she wrote or revised three articles, all of which are under review, and submitted a grant proposal.
