A proud aunt posted her 3-year-old niece's progress with learning the Ojibwe language using flashcards last year on YouTube.

The aunt reported more recently that Ava's mother got her started with the flashcards but now the "whole family is pitching in to teach her what we can." Ava is now 4 and has expanded her vocabulary. She can now count to five in Ojibwe.
