Life and career[edit]

Margaret Noodin is among the most well-known speakers of the Ojibwe language. She is the editor of, and has led a weekly Ojibwe language group at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, where she served as Director of Comprehensive Studies.[1][2][3]

She is the co-author of Anishinaabemowin Maajaamigad (The Anishinaabe Language Leaves), and of Esbibanens gii bi Dagooshin, with Howard Kimewon.[4]

In 2014, she legally changed her name to Noodin to coincide with the publication of Bawaajimo and her departure from the University of Michigan, which ceased to offer first year Ojibwe classes. She is now Associate Professor of English and American Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.[5]

She currently serves as the President of the Studies in American Indian Literatures Association.
