KIDS PAGE Doodem clan Boozhoo nindinawemaaganidog hello my relatives. Niin dash Makoonz Makwa doodem Odawazaiganing nindoonjibaa. My name is Makoons which means bear cub. If you noticed in my introduction it was all in our Ojibwe language.WecallourlanguageOjibwemowin.WhenIintro- duced myself I told you my name and after that I told you my clan which is makwa bear. Lastly I mentioned where I come from Lac Courte Oreilles. Our word for clan is doodem. Clans are the way that our people maintain organization. I come from the bear clan. Our people were originally the police of the community. We would patrol and solve disputes. We also spent a lot of time in the woods which made us very knowledgeable of the plants used as mashkiki. Mashkiki is our word for medicine. Other clans have different duties. Our oral history tells us that we had five original clans. However some common clans are ajijaak crane maang loon makwa bear waawaashkeshi deer waabizheshi marten giigoonh fishbineshiinhbirdmigizieagleawaazisiibullhead mikinaak turtle. When we share the same clan as someone else they are considered our relative.
