Oji-Cree or Severn Ojibwa is a variety of Ojibwe, an Algonquian language, and is spoken in parts of northern Ontario and at Island Lake in Manitoba in Canada by about 12,900 people.
Speakers of Oji-Cree call themselves Anishinini ('ordinary person') and their language Anishininiimowin ('language of ordinary people').
Oji-Cree is closely related to other varieties of Ojibwe and has been influenced significantly by the Cree language, particularly as a result of missionary activity by Cree speakers.
Oji-Cree is usually written with a version of Canadian Aboriginal Syllabics.
Oji-Cree-speaking communities in northern Ontario sometimes use a version of the Latin alphabet to write their language. It is known as the Northern Fiero Roman Orthography, and was devised by Charles Fiero.
