Sela G. Wright Digital Collection | Oberlin College Archives

Sela G. Wright Digital Collection
The Sela G. Wright Digital Collection at Oberlin College is a joint project of The Center for Research Libraries (CRL), Oberlin College Archives, and Oberlin College Library. From 1843 until 1862, Sela G. Wright spent most of his time in Minnesota at the Ojibwe communities around Leech Lake and Red Lake before any land there was ceded to the U.S. government and throughout the establishment of the reservations at Leech Lake and Winnibigoshish in 1855. Even today, Wright's field notes, vocabulary lists, and grammatical sketch of the Ojibwe language stand as a major contribution to the field of linguistics. Although it was not his primary concern or intention, Wright's correspondence, field notes, and grammar work also serve as instruments of lasting value to historians of the Ojibwe and to those who continue to strive for the revitalization of Ojibwe language and culture.
