The Ojibwe phrase of the day is “Bangii Oodena Anishinaabeg” – Little Town People. Nanaboozhoo tells us a story of a young man who goes off with a vision to start the “Little Town People” or “Bangii Oodena Anishinaabeg.” He gathers a group of people who are singers and dancers and they end up forming The Village People and living at the YMCA.
