Healthy Habitats, Healthy Homes Theme for Red Lake's Aki Giizhigad

 

The 2011 Aki Giizhigad events included a fish pond for kids where they were likely to get an old shoe or tire as well as a nicer prize, although all went home with a nicer prize.

“Healthy Habitats” and "Healthy Homes" is the theme for Aki Giizhigad (Earth Day) events at Red Lake on Thursday, April 19, 2012. All events are being held at the Seven Clans Casino Event Center at Red Lake beginning with an opening address at 11am and activities concluding at 4pm.
