Cover matter for Ogichidaa Storytellers Education Materials

Ogichidaa (“warrior”) Storytellers, supported by the Great Lakes Indian Fish and Wildlife Commission (GLIFWC), shares the struggle of the Anishinaabe (also known as Ojibwe or Chippewa) to retain treaty reserved harvesting rights throughout the ceded territories of Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Michigan.

This series for students in grades 6-12 includes six videos, each with educational materials created by GLIFWC, the Wisconsin Historical Society, and the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. The educational materials contain lesson plans, enduring understandings, essential questions, vocabulary words, and extension activities.
