An elder based in Treaty 3 Territory in northwestern Ontario says he hopes a new website will help to preserve traditional Anishinaabe language and culture for generations to come.

The recently launched firstnationelders.com features podcasts, videos and songs recorded by elders eager to share their knowledge.

"We have a lodge called Ki'eshgitabaaning Cultural & Healing Lodge, and it's a teaching lodge," said Alo White, of Naotkamegwanning First Nation, who is spearheading the effort.
