We encourage the use the Potawatomi language whenever possible.
Below are some resources for learning, teaching and speaking the Potawatomi language.


The Language Department hopes this section will be an area were tribal members can learn a little about some of our traditional ceremonies as well as access some of the many scriptural pieces which have been written in Potawatomi. We hope to add the ten commandments, and other scriptural pieces as time allows.

Also we will hopefully be including some in the future about some of our traditional ceremonies such as naming, sweat lodge etc as culturally appropriate.


These are a series of old tapes done with an unknown speaker in perhaps the 1970's or early 1980's. This elder is giving his thoughts about various topics. Each tape was 15 minute on each side. He would talk for a couple moments in English then say the entire thing in Potawatomi.
