A puppet podcast by Michael Lyons, supported by the MN Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund

Michael Lyons is the creator of the puppet podcast Boozhoo Nanaboozhoo. This year, he's creating videos for KAXE/KBXE. We'll learn Ojibwe culture and language and get to see for ourselves the wonderful relationship of Natasha and Nanaboozhoo.

This week Natasha and Michael sing a song to teach us to say"Blueberry Pie" in Ojibwe. Then, Natasha teleports outside to teach "It is cold" and "I am cold" before finally returning for another song, "Leech Lake".
