Anishinabeg, the people of Odaawaa-Zaaga'iganiing, the Lac Courte Oreilles Tribe, will sustain our heritage, preserving our past, strengthening our present, and embracing our future. At Mid Winter Social Ojibwe youth represents through song dance drums and lightbrigade MINOBIMAADIZI.
When Anishinaabeg ask, "aaniin ezhi-bimaadizi" or "How are you doing?" those words literally ask, "How is your path?"
How is your path? Aaniin ezhi-bimaadizi?
To have a good path is "MINOBIMAADIZI".
To have a good path requires a solid, healthy place to put your feet.
Where is your path? What does "minobimaadizi" mean to you, your children and the great-great grandchildren?
What does minobimaadizi mean to the earth beneath our feet and to the cycles of water and weather and walking?
