The mission of Waadookodaading is to create proficient speakers of the Ojibwe language who are able to meet the challenges of our rapidly changing world. The school will be a community center for language revitalization, local environmental understanding, and intergenerational relationships. We expect that students will be grounded in local language, culture, and traditions, while aware of global concerns. Our aim is to foster a love of learning while teaching the skills that will enable students to create solutions for our community and our
planet.
