How to use the Ojibwe People's Dictionary

gibidoonepizowin ni

a face mask (covering the mouth)

See also: gibidoonepizon ni

Since gibidoonepizon a face mask is pronounced the same as gibidoonepizon, the singular command form of gibidoonepizo s/he wears a face mask, Ogimaagwanebiik suggests gibidoonepizowin be used instead for face mask. However when talking about whose mask it is, she uses the possessed forms of gibidoonepizon.
