TEACHER APPRECIATION DAY 2022

Teacher Appreciation Day was May 3rd, but it's never too late to recognize teachers of all kinds and acknowledge that they are at the center of language revitalization work. Education starts at home and moves to the classroom, with each student carrying that knowledge into the world.

Thank you to the Elders, speakers, knowledge keepers, classroom and at-home educators, and all those who are working to reinvigorate Indigenous languages.

GII-WAH-BAH MAH SHIGAG PICTURE BOOK & VIDEO RELEASE
 

Congratulations to the Dauphin River First Nation on the release of Gii-wah-bah mah shigag! (I Saw a Skunk), a bilingual Anishinaabemowin and English picture book! The picture book is accompanied by a YouTube video with audio recordings provided by Elder Mary Stagg Jr. to help Anishinaabe learners.

Illustrations were created by Omani Luger, a graphic illustrator and cartoonist from the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. Dauphin River School’s Principal, Lalaine Tugade, led the picture book’s development. The book’s creation and distribution are made possible thanks to Dauphin River First Nation, Frontier School Division, and the Dauphin River School, with financial support from a foundation and Manitoba Heritage Grants Program.
