Boozhoo Nanaboozhoo Video: "Bemidjigamaag" - "Lake With Crossing Waters"

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.

Today join us for the Ojibwe word of the day - "Bemidjigamaag" which means "Lake With Crossing Waters". Nanaboozhoo tells us the legend of Chief Bemidji who was ”Shaynowishkug” or “He Who Rattles”.
