PAGE 23 MAZINA’IGAN FALL 2016 The poster focuses on climate change and offering good thoughts for healing to some of those most affected recently, including nibi (water), wiigwaas (birch bark), mooz (moose), namegos(trout),andmanoomin(wildrice).Weareallconnected and impact on one eco-system echoes to another.

Madeofwiigwaasisaflowerwithfivepetals,thefloralrep- resentingwomen,sittingwithinNookomisGiizis(Grandmother Moon). We are grateful for ourAnishinaabekweg (Anishinaabe women) who walk and sing for the water. Sharing water teach- ings and songs is vital for us all. Nookomis Giizis influences the movements of the waters, which rise each day from melting land ice and expanding sea water. In turn, all movements on and around Nookomis Giizis can change the direction and motion of the waters. In the stars beside Nookomis Giizis is the Mooz constel- lation, who returns in the fall and watches over the ones who walk, swim, crawl, and fly below. Mooz represents ongoing survival. Mooz looks down at namegos, who swims and leaps. Namegos has long provided nourishment to our people and for this we honor them today through restoration efforts and climate change research. Namegos thrive best in cool water. Namegos swims towards shallower water where manoo- min grows. Manoomin is essential as food and medicine for our people. We are here at these waters thanks to this sacred nourishment. We respect manoomin by caring for the waters, removing invasive plants to allow the stalks to grow, and being gentle when we knock the stalks for rice. While there is change, there is also hope for healing.

Niibin(Summer),thethird setofbookletsintheNenda-gik- endamang Ningo-biboonagak (We Seek to Learn Throughout the Year) series, will soon be ready for distribution. In the Niibin storybook, Nigig and friends explore traditional Anishinaabe cultural activities, working together to garden, harvest birch bark, and gather berries. Nenda-gikendamang Ningo-biboonagak (We Seek to Learn throughout the Year) is a project funded through a grant from the Administration for Native Americans. The project’s goal is to promote Ojibwe language learning to ensure continued preservation. By creating the materials for immersion learning environ- ments, we will increase access to the language for a younger audience. This three-year grant will produce a set of booklets for each of the four seasons, and a dedicated website. Following the format of “Biboon” (the first set of booklets distributed to GLIFWC member tribes), the “Ziigwan” and “Niibin” seasonal set of booklets contains: a monolingual storybook, a monolingual activity book, and a bilingual parent/teacher answer book. The “Ziigwan” sets have been delivered to all 11 GLIFWC member tribes and project partners. The “Niibin” sets of booklets are in the final layout process. You can expect the “Niibin” sets to be distributed in late summer and early autumn. Each of the 11 GLIFWC member tribes will receive 660 books, including 220 of the storybook, 220 of the workbook, and 220 of the parent/teacher edition. Each communitywilldistributethesesetsastheyseefittoensurethatthelimitednumber of sets reach the appropriate audience. The project’s website, www.glifwc-inwe. com, provides interactive language games as well as valuable resources available to download and/or print.
