Many people concerned with the rights of North America’s original peoples are aware of the heinous history of colonialism and the abuses perpetrated by boarding schools (and racist education in general), church indoctrination and subjugation, social services that break up families, military genocide, land-theft, and a “health-care” system sometimes sanctioned to sterilize Native women and inflict disease.

One of our teachers, James Vukelich, posts the Ojibwe Word of the Day on Facebook every Thursday and I try to never miss it. These are beautiful lessons in what the words in our language mean, where those words came from and how our ancestors could see the best place to put some of our most important lessons so they wouldn’t be lost is in the language itself.

There’s so much to screech and yell about I don’t know where to start, so I’ll begin with my angst. I used to have long, black hair which is so Indian I don’t know where to start except I hate those ‘romantic’ Indian cards with their absurd blowing locks. I had my hair cut in 2013 cuz because I am unable to maintain long hair due to my disability so I got it cut really short.

Thirty years ago, Anishinaabe teacher, Maryellen Baker, had a dream in which she was called to help to spread the Anishinaabe teachings with others. Her work began with creating a center for wellness, and has become more urgent as all of us have witnessed the pollution of the waters. Water is life, and it is the role of women to protect and bless the water, and the role of men to support women in that work.
