From what I gather the ojibwa/etc language is the
2nd most common in North America.

So assuming there is a native american speaker on the board
the request is for a translation of the word
'dragon'( and possible equivalents such as

snake thunderbird
big snake
scaley thunderbird

into both the common alphabets version
of the chippewa word and or its rending in the
algonkian syllabus form.

( for the rest of us
apparently Norval Morriseau signs his paintings
using that syllabus using his native name
which translates into english as
Copper Thunderbird
