Dibajimooyang: Telling Our Story

$25,000 • Sault St. Marie

This project was a collaboration between the Inter-Tribal Council of Michigan and nDigiDreams, a woman-owned Indigenous-focused consulting and training company that specializes in instructional technology and digital storytelling. The project collaborated with tribal and educational organizations throughout Michigan to host three “community conversation” events designed to bring Anishinaabe together to participate in traditional storytelling practices. At these events, project coordinators identified storytellers who were invited to a storytelling workshop run by nDigiDreams. Approximately 20 participants had an opportunity to create and produce their own digital story from beginning to end using their own voice, pictures, and music.

You Are Not Alone – Poem by Autumn Martin. Voice with Shane Shiloh.
