BP: Camp for the culture: Red Lake language camp combines fun and tradition

PONEMAH -- On Tuesday morning, the area near the Ponemah Round House was filled with the sights and sounds of a typical summer camp. Children chased each other around the grounds, played games like "telephone" and "Marco Polo" and prepared for a nature walk.

But -- while the three-day Ojibwe Language and Culture Camp aims to show kids a good time -- its goal runs deeper: expose Ojibwe children to their culture and improve their sense of who they are.
