All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.

Ojibwe is an Algonquian language spoken on by about 50,000 people in the Canadian provinces of Ontario, Manitoba and Saskatchewan, and by about 30,000 people in the US states of Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Montana and North Dakota. The Ojibwe syllabary is used mainly in Canada, while in the USA the Latin alphabet is prefered for writing Ojibwe.

The Ojibwe langauge has a number of names, including Anishinaabemowin (ᐊᓂᔑᓈᐯᒧᐎᓐ) and Ojibwemowin (ᐅᒋᐺᒧᐎᓐ). The Ojibwa people call themselves Anishinaabeg (ᐊᓂᔑᓈᐯᒃ)

Translation

All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
(Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights)

 

Religion is a set of social and political institutions and spirituality is a private pursuit which may or may not take place in a church setting.
