Learn Potawatomi through conversations

Potawatomi, or Bodwéwadmimwen, is the native language of the Potawatomi people. Created in collaboration with the Pokagon Tribe of Potawatomi as a part of their language revitalization efforts, this course delivers a blend of learning features, exercises, and personalized review with an award-winning conversational learning process that focuses on the four skills necessary to connect in another language; grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, and culture.

Grammar Notes

No interpretation is created equal. Grammar Notes, color-coding, and features that focus on specific grammatical nuances between target and source language strengthens your understanding of Potawatomi language structure.

Culture Notes

Etiquette, body language, gestures — set the mood. Culture Notes provide a backdrop to learning material and let the Potawatomi culture come alive, setting you up to forge deeper connections with Potawatomi culture and make a positive impression.


Critical thinking and memory-building exercises blend new vocabulary into lesson progress, allowing you to pick up on the structure of your target language so you can apply new content that will be presented in various contexts throughout the course.
