Source: I found the source of this textbook on www.treaty1.com/languages.html (the website is currently off) as audio lessons. There were neither explanations, nor grammar notes. They say it was from Fort Alexander, Manitoba. And the source of it is "A Saulteaux Phrase Book," (1972) compiled by "the University of Brandon through consultations with many Anishinaabeg in Manitoba who spoke the language and had the desire to preserve a very old and sacred Language by writing it down."

I turned it into html and also wrote some simple comments. I also used comments from www.nisto.com Cree lessons, which appear very useful also for this textbook.
