The inter-active DVD also includes 12 short video clips for most of the seasons including spearing a fish through the ice and tanning a deer hide. Working with speakers and tribal harvesters, the DVD includes language lessons for spearing through the ice, sugar bush, wild rice harvesting/processing, trapping, snaring, hunting, spring spearing, gill net fishing, and hide tanning.

20192019 Calendar

Mazinibaganjigan features artwork by birch bark biter Awanigiizhik (Roderick) Bruce of the Turtle Mountain Ojibwe. Bruce says he was told that birch bark biting was taught by the babies. “Small teething toys were made of paper birch and were filled with maple sugar. If the baby was sick, other medicines were added. When the babies would bite the toys, small indentations from their developing teeth were imparted onto the birch bark surface. The parents saw this and the art of birch bark biting was born.” The first four copies of the calendar are free of charge; additional calendars are .50 each plus postage. To get your free copies call (715) 682-6619 or email lynn@glifwc.org.
