Overview

This dictionary, compiled nearly 150 years ago, remains the most comprehensive and accurate lexicon available of the Ojibway language. Baraga (1797-1868), a priest from Slovenia, was sent in 1833 as a missionary among the Ojibway living in the Lake Superior region. The multilingual Baraga quickly learned the Ojibway language and over many years worked within the community to produce the phonetic spellings on which modern orthography is based. In 1853 the first edition of A Dictionary of the Otchipwe Language Explained in English was published. An enlarged edition of the dictionary followed in 1878 and is the version now reprinted.
