Boozhoo Nana Boozhoo: WII ZOOGIPON: It Will Snow!

michael_lyons_talk.jpg

Our friends Nana Boozhoo and Natasha teach us the Ojibwe word we don't want to hear.  WII ZOOGIPON.  It will snow.

It's bound to happen.  It's northern Minnesota. 

You can meet the Ojibwe puppets and their creator this Wednesday October 16th at the MacRostie Art Center in Grand Rapids for their mid-month artist talk from 6-7pm.

Michael Lyons is an artist, musician and mastermind between our new friends Nana Boozhoo and Natasha - together they make the puppet show for youTube and the radio Boozhoo Nana Boozhoo.
