Bebikaan-ezhiwebiziwinan Nimkii: The Adventures of Nimkii
Come hang out and get to know authors Stacie Sheldon and Margaret Noodin for a fun afternoon of Books in Anishinaabemowin!! This event features two books intended to show the contemporary Anishinaabe worldview as it is situated between the traditions of the past and as it contributes to the innovation needed for survival into the future. What the Chickadee Knows and The Adventures of Nimkii were both published this fall 2020!

Bebikaan-ezhiwebiziwinan Nimkii: The Adventures of Nimkii is the story of a modern dog who lives an adventurous life through all four seasons. Learners will notice the book provides a basic introduction to most of the things that make Ojibwe unique in an interactive format. The book is fully bilingual, written by Nimkii's human companion, Stacie Sheldon. https://ojibwe.net/stories/childrens/nimkii-book/

What the Chickadee Knows (Gijigijigaaneshiinh Gikendaan), written by Margaret Noodin, is a gesture toward a future that includes Anishinaabemowin and other indigenous languages seeing growth and revitalization. This bilingual collection includes Anishinaabemowin and English, with the poems mirroring one another on facing pages. In the first part, "What We Notice" (E-Maaminonendamang), Noodin introduces a series of seasonal poems that invoke Anishinaabe science and philosophy. The second part, "History" (Gaa Ezhiwebag), offers nuanced contemporary views of Anishinaabe history. Illustrated by U-M Alum, Shannon Noori. https://birchbarkbooks.com/ficti.../what-the-chickadee-knows
