Here’s an Appropriate Song for Today

That’s right, it’s “Winter Wonderland” sung in Ojibwe. It don’t get more Minnesotan than that, ina?

Anetsodi, y’all

Jesse and I spent Sunday night and all day Monday at the Fond du Lac reservation near Duluth for a lacrosse camp put on by the Minnesota Swarm, the Native American Law Enforcement Summit and the Fond du Lac Band of Ojibwe. I was there to write about the camp and to take some pictures for The Circle newspaper and several other native publications on behalf of the Swarm. Jesse was there to hang out with the other native youth and her favorite all time lax player, the great Travis Hill. We had to rush back to The Cities late Monday afternoon, me for a school board meeting and Jesse for lacrosse playoffs (Eastview B beat Burnsville 6-4 to start the tourney — go, Lightning!)

Below are some pix from the camp. I’ll post links to the story when it’s done.

Scenes from our Ojibwe Class

The young people from the ISD 196 Ojibwe language class shot video and worked with teacher James Vukelich to make Ojibwe-immersion teaching aids for youth at our last Saturday session. Above are some photos from the class.
