Ojibwe Language and Culture Camp Scheduled

Open to Kids Ages 6-18

 

Drum Stick making, 2017 Camp

The Red Lake Band of Chippewa Indians will host an Ojibwe Language and Culture Camp on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, July 24 to 26, 2018 from 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. for the sixth consecutive year.

The three-day Gabeshiwin (camp) will feature canoeing and swimming, lacrosse, moccasin game, drum and dance, plant identification, crafts, birch bark making, leatherwork, 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 the rich culture of the Anishinaabe. 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. Red Lake Chemical Health, Red Lake Economic Development and Planning, and Red Lake Waasabiik Immersion School host the Camp.

The Gabeshiwin 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: Reyna Lussier, Red Lake Chemical Health, 218-679-1547 or Liz White, Red Lake Economic Development, 218-679-1462
