Ojibwe Language and Culture Camp Scheduled

Open to Kids Ages 6-18

 

Leather working, 2016 Camp

The Red Lake Band of Chippewa Indians will host an Ojibwe Language and Culture Camp on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, July 18 to 20, 2016 from 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. for the fifth consecutive year.

The three-day camp will feature canoeing and swimming, lacrosse, moccasin game, drum and dance, plant identification, crafts, birch bark making, leatherwork, drum stick making, traditional Anishinaabe teachings and more. The camp's main location will be the Ponemah Round House in the back woods of Obaashiing. Transportation and meals are provided.

This is a time that Red Lake children, families and community look forward to; it provides them an opportunity to immerse themselves in Ojibwemowin and our rich culture. Great efforts are made to teach children the importance of kinship, language and culture; this helps to build confidence. Elders play a large role as teachers for the teachers.

Admission is free but limited in number. If interested in participating or for more information, contact Red Lake Chemical Health at 218-679-3392 or Ponemah Outpatient. The Camp is hosted by Red Lake Chemical Health, Red Lake Economic Development and Planning, and Red Lake Head Start Immersion School, .

The Gabeshiwin (camp) is part of Red Lake Nation's Ojibwemowin (Ojibwe Language) Revitalization efforts.

It's a community event and everyone is welcome! If you have any additional questions, please contact: Karen Barrett or Reyna Lussier, Red Lake Chemical Health, 218-679-3392,
