Week 3: Ojibwe Number Activities

Number Activities

Play Cribbage
While you play Cribbage, use your Ojibwe numbers to count instead of the English. When you get a fifteen, don’t say, “Fifteen, two.” You will say, “Ashi-naanan, niizh.”

Play Bingo
While playing bingo, the bingo caller must call out the numbers in Ojibwe. Beginners may have the numbers in front of them, until they learn them. When you get a bingo, you must repeat the numbers on your bingo in Ojibwe to prove you have a valid bingo.
