This book is one piece of a larger project dedicated to weaving the Ojibway language, art and culture throughout the Ojibway Prairie Complex and the Ojibway Nature Centre. Stories introduce each colouring page and include the Ojibway language (Anishinaabemowin). This is the language that was spoken here by the Original People of this place. The Ojibwe words were chosen from the Ojibwe People's Dictionary and the book Bkejwanong Dbaajmowinan/Stories of Where the Waters Divide by Monty McGahey II. The colouring pages in this book are inspired from the home of the artist Mariah Alexander, Bkejwanong (Walpole Island) and Ojibway Prairie Complex (Windsor, Ontario), where water (pond, stream), tree and tallgrass prairie habitats are alive and home to all of our Relations. Embedded hyperlinks are provided to take you to other resources on the internet including learning how to pronounce many of the Ojibway words.
