This won’t be the first time, or the last time, that games are used in an effort to preserve a fading language or culture.

In this case, the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe has launched a project to preserve the Ojibwe language, which is slightly different from the Canadian Ojibwe dialect in case you were wondering.

Spearheaded by Julie White Pigeon, the Tribe has hosted gatherings and created tools such as Ojibwe board games, Bingo, and Charades.

To do your part, the next time you win a game try saying “Geep Kinagay!”
