Description

Nanaboozhoo Babaamosed: Nanaboozhoo Went Walking and Other Stories from Grand Portage is a special project that brings together several traditional Ojibwe stories from Grand Portage first published in several volumes in the late 1970s under the directorship of Billy Blackwell. Grand Portage Elders Liza Thibault, Ogimabinaysik, Dakos, Alec Bushman, Amelia Legarde and Billy Blackwell contributed to the bi-lingual texts.

For this second edition the original Ojibwe texts have been re-transcribed into the double vowel system used now by many speakers and teachers. The book includes original artwork created for the first publication as well as an epilogue offering the reader more about the context and methodology.

The collection is a gift to students and teachers of Ojibwe who can study the words and language anytime and save most of the stories for reading in the winter when snow is on the ground. However, readers are encouraged to enjoy “Nishiime, the Lost Boy” and “The Boy Who Turned Into a Robin,” anytime of the year!
