Hi, Kenn,

Sorry to hear you're stranded, but at least it's in a nice place, great weather and wonderful produce. I loved the salad we had there.

I want to reiterate my invitation to start an Ojibwe collection in MERLOT World Languages. The first step would be to log in, click on contribute a material and follow the form. Tutorials, drill and practice, collections, videos, podcasts and many other material types are available. When you categorize your materials for now, the path will be Humanities, World Languages, Less Commonly Taught. Please be sure to put Ojibwe in as a keyword. If you're logged into MERLOT, you'll see my contact info in the Member Directory. I am here to help.
Please extend my invitation to other Native American colleagues to put their web resources into MERLOT. I can even arrange a sub-category when we have enough materials added. Thanks for enriching our collection in that way, so that faculty members and students will have access to them.

Best,

Laura
