Once upon an Ojibwe story time in Duluth

Storyteller Abby Johnson reads to children during Ojibwe Story Time at the Duluth Depot. The weekly event not only introduces children to Ojibwe traditions and culture, it also highlights a growing catalog of children's literature from local authors.

Stop me if you've heard this story before.

This is the story of how the porcupine got its quills. Or maybe it's a book about puppies at a summer powwow. Maybe we'll learn how to draw maple sugar from the trees. Or read the adventures of a little girl named Mai, walking around Lake Superior with her family to try to protect its waters from pollution.

This is Ojibwe Story Time.

Every Wednesday, children gather around storyteller and museum assistant Abby Johnson in the Depot, an old train depot-turned-museum in downtown Duluth.
