Ganabaj Wii-zoogipon

The Ojibwemowin weather phrases for us this weekend are:

it's cloudy
"Ganabaj wii-zoogipan"
it might snow
Leslie Harper (Saagajiwe) used this phrase in her Ojibwemowin weather forecast this week.
"Aaniin" is a very useful word. It's often used as a greeting around Leech Lake, but can also ask what, how, why or where depending on the context.

"Aaniin ezhiwebak agwajiing noongom?"
What's the weather today?

"Ningwakwad. Ganabaj wii-zoogipon"
It's cloudy. It might snow.

Our language lessons will continue Tuesdays and Thursdays at 8:35 on 91.7 KAXE's Morning Show.
