The Aanjibimaadizing, a program of the Mille Lacs Band, is committed to keeping Indigenous language thriving. To help this mission along they launched a project to bring their language to the pages of a multi-book series. We are putting the spotlight on the latest book in the collection “Gaa-Pi-Izhiwebak.” It features stories that stem from cultural teachings, histories and memories that a group of tribal elders hold dear. We’ll hear from those involved in the project including the book’s illustrator who had the charge of rendering elders’ stories into colorful images.
