Nando-gikenimindwaa Nindinawemaaganidog: Getting to know all of creation

This 100-page book serves as a tool to help you become familiar with these forms of life: Water, Air, Fire, Rocks, Plants, Trees and the Animals.

Creating this book was inspired by the lack of materials and resources available for the youth and those wanting to learn and understand the life around us.
