On this episode of Ojibwe Stories: Gaganoonididaa we have a conversation with Leona Wakonabo and Gerri Howard.  They grew up on the Leech Lake Reservation and currently work at the Niigaane Immersion School in Leech Lake.  They are also one of the elders working for the Ojibwemotaadidaa Adult Immersion Program.  Our discussion is about the seasonal activities in their community when they were growing up, including fishing, making maple syrup, and looking for signs in nature.
