Plans in the works for Anishinaabe Day

Two First Nations organizations have put together lesson plans to help Indigenous and non-Indigenous teachers and students understand the importance of Anishinaabe Day coming up next week.

The Kinoomaadziwin Education Body and Anishinabek Nation have jointly developed lesson plans surrounding the day, June 6th, which honours Anishinaabe identity, history, traditions, and pride. The three Ontario Curriculum connections will help support teachers who are also learning about Anishinaabe Giizhigad.

“As the Anishinabek Nation celebrates Anishinaabe Ghizhgad on June 6th, it is important for everyone to understand the significance of the day. The Kinoomaadziwin Education Body has partnered with the Anishinabek Nation to develop lesson plans to share with teachers and students across Ontario to help them learn about the significance of the Anishinabek Nation Chi-Naaknigwin,” states Kinoomaadziwin Education Body Director of Education Shining Turtle. “Ngo Dwe Waangizid Anishinaabe defines who we are as Anishinabek and our responsibilities. We share our knowledge with the children and youth through these new lessons plans. We look forward to providing more teaching tools and resources in the near future.”

The Anishinabek Nation Leadership Council, June 6 proclaimed June 6th as a significant culturally focused day back in November of 2021.
