I genuinely kept hoping to find something that would substantiate her various claims of Ojibwe ancestry. I still hope to find something that will change how things look right now. There are no winners in this situation or situations like it.

This pretty much describes my attitude in this case too. At least from what I see online, her language work looks to be respected, I'd rather that she not be a fraud.

It appears that Margaret and “Ssenier” have both served as officers of the Association for the Study of American Indian Literatures (ASAIL).

ASAIL Officer List:

I found her original surname (I hope) together with a different spelling of her first name, too:

Margaret A. Noodin (born Margeret Noori, 1965) is an American poet and Anishinaabemowin language teacher. She is a Professor of English and American Indian Studies at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee.

I wonder if Margeret is a misspelling for Margaret? I find several publications both by Margaret Noodin and Margaret Noori, but none by Margeret Noori. Several websites repeat the wording I quoted from Wikipedia, it might be a misspelling, with one single source being quoted again and again. (Then again, she might have changed from Margeret to Margaret long before she changed her last name.)

Seems I didn't find her original surname, after all. The phrase "(born Margeret Noori", 1965)" was removed 3 days later:

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Margaret_Noodin&action=history
"26 April 2021? Ssenier talk contribs?  …  (removed inaccurate and unsourced birth name)".

The person who removed the phrase: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Ssenier

I was inspired to join Wikipedia in part by the #tooFEW Feminist Takeover of Wikipedia on March 15, 2013. I teach Native American literature at the University of New Hampshire. I have assigned my students to add to the List of writers from peoples indigenous to the Americas, and I have presented with User:Vizjim at the Native American Literature Symposium on how to improve Wikipedia's indigenous content. You can see the archive for our 2015 meetup, and contribute.

Yes, 2 entries for Margaret Noori, 5 entries for Margaret Noodin.

7 entries for Siobhan Senier, University of New Hampshire. (https://cola.unh.edu/person/siobhan-senier)
So she is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Ssenier (I have this confirmed from other sources, too.)

Is there any evidence Margaret Noodin knew or taught the Ojibwe Language before moving to Ann Arbor, Michigan and working with Irving "Hap" McCue in 1992? And did Margaret teach the Ojibwe language anywhere prior to 2006?

Meg Aerol and four others were thanked for "transcribing and some copy editing" in the Oshkaabewis Native Journal, Volume 1, Issue 3, American Indian Studies Center, 1990.

But I don't know what all that involved. Only a snippet view of this can be seen on Google Books.

Meg was one of 2 Ojibway language instructors at U of Mich after Hap McCue passed. She started teaching Ojibway in 2006 with Hap and continued with Howard Kimewon after Hap passed in March 2008 until she moved to Wisconsin and I dont remember the exact year

Oshkaabewis Native Journal back issues are online, including vol. 1 no. 3:
https://www.bemidjistate.edu/airc/community-resources/journal/history-and-back-issues/

The acknowledgment including Aerol is on p. 3 of the pdf. There are brief texts in Ojibwe on p. 29 and on p. 167.
