“Let’s keep in mind what we have been taught”
$2.50
Ojibwe artist Sarah Howes of the Fond du Lac Band created this year’s poster in hopes of inspiring and providing a sense of optimism for those most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. It serves as a raw reminder that when we remember our teachings, we receive the gifts of strength and clarity. The other orders of creation have helped us to survive, and they will continue to help if we remember these important relationships. Dr. Michael Sullivan, an Ojibwe linguist and immersion instructor at the Waadookodaading Ojibwe Language Institute pondered the notion of Anishinaabe clan teachings and the current pandemic, remarking “Minjimendandaa gaa-gikinoo’amaagoowiziyang—Let’s keep in mind what we have been taught.” To get one free copy, email lynn@glifwc.org.

Woven sashes and various bells grace the stylized curves and edges of these colorful, ornate outfits.GLIFWC is proud to share this powerful photograph and the story it encapsulates, and continues.
