Naadamaading: Dibaajimowinan Ji-Nisdotaading
Meet Makoons and her friend Nigigoons. Together with their other friends and family, they go berrying and fishing, and listen to the stories of the elders.
These original stories, written in Anishinaabemowin by a storytelling team of skillful first language speakers and scholars, delight readers and language learners with the antics of animals who playfully deal with situations familiar to children in all cultures: learning to work with others, listening to elders, venturing out alone, playing and working hard, and dodging dangers in the big world that surrounds their smaller lives. Interwoven in the stories are threads of Ojibwe culture and tradition.
