Publisher Marketing:

Through the Aanjibimaadizing Project, an initiative of the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe, sixteen first speakers have teamed with linguists, teachers, and Ojibwe language experts to create this new literature for Ojibwe language learners. Conceived and presented only in Ojibwe, the stories reflect a rare authenticity as they transmit cultural values, increase vocabulary, and reinforce identity. Anooj Inaajimod ( They Tell All Kinds of Things) was written for teachers, students, and Ojibwe language and culture enthusiasts ages ten and above. 
In this anthology of twenty-three charming and original stories, people get into and out of trouble, make and solve problems, and have funny and surprising adventures. The tellings range from hilarious personal reminiscences to legendary exploits, both modern and historical. From the true story of a family that adopted and raised a baby deer until nursing the fawn became too painful for its adoptive human mother to the story of a squirrel accidentally scampering onto the back of an owl and being taken for the ride of its life across Mille Lacs Lake, here you will find Ojibwe storytelling at its finest. Agindaasodaa (let's read)!
