Land-Based Learning

Bimose Tribal Council and its governing member communities have set out goals of revitalizing and preserving Anishinaabemowin for our future generations. Under this direction, Bimose Tribal Council has undertaken a number of initiatives. This particular project, to complete videos in Anishinaabemowin reflects this direction. The videos are land-based, traditional activities the people of the territory still practice today. It is our hope these videos will capture the oral and written language and will be shared with generations to come.
