Today we learned ZAASAKOKWAAN BAAKWEZHIGAN. The Ojibwe word for frybread. There's even a recipe! Thanks to Michael Lyons and his sidekicks Nana Boozhoo and Natasha for contributing their work to KAXE/KBXE.
The culture was lost. Everybody had short hair. Nobody was speaking in Ojibwe but, you know, the culture wasn't lost because people were still fishing and ricing and hunting and living within extended families. And so... all the meaningful native culture stuff you can't... destroy. - Michael Lyons referring to the time his grandfather fled boarding school and returned to Bena.
