As part of a recent outreach program, The Arc of Michigan, translated some of their beliefs into Anishinaabemowin. The Arc exists to empower citizens with developmental disabilities.
Here are their powerful words:
G'noondaaigom gwa ezhi-gagwede'ig.
We hear what you are asking.
Nishin igo ge giinwa enendaamig.
It's really good to know what you all think.
N'wiikijitoonaa maanda wii naadamagooig ezhi-bagosendamig.
We are trying to help you have what you hope for.
