3/21 Ojibwe Stories: Gaganoonididaa - Our Grandfathers Are Eternity

By Helena Jacoba (via Flickr)

  This episode of Ojibwe Stories: Gaganoonididaa is the second of a two-part conversation with Justin Boshey, who shares with us knowledge about many topics, including many of the sprits that inhabit and guide the Ojibwe, the four parts of the Ojibwe identity (soul, spirit, body, and clan), the Ojibwe rock paintings, the grandfather teachings, and the significance of water at the beginning and end of the life journey.

Justin Boshey is a member of the Lac La Croix First Nation, and is a traditional knowledge carrier, former chief and first speaker of the Ojibwe language. Justin is a talented musician, speaker, and workshop facilitator. He presently resides at the Northwest Bay (Naicatchewenin) First Nation with his family.

Ojibwe Stories: Gaganoonididaa is produced by KUMD and the Department of American Indian Studies at UMD, with funding provided in part by the UMD College of Education and Human Service Professions, and by The Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.

Chris Harwood is The North 1033’s Production Director and (acting) Program Director, a morning/daytime host, and the host of Soul Village. He is also a musician, a music historian, an audio engineer, and an avid record collector.
