BEMIDJI-How do you say "auditorium" in Ojibwemowin?

A project at Bemidji High School aims to help. Students and staff there Thursday morning put up 29 QR codes adjacent to existing signs for the school's bathrooms, academic departments, offices and its gichi mawanji'idiiwigamig-auditorium. Students, staff, and visitors can scan the codes with a smartphone to check out a short pronunciation guide.
