    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Helpers will have access to daily learning of the Ojibwe language, pow wows, and other Anishnaabe cultural events, and will leave here having learned a great deal about the First Peoples of this territory. A deeper understanding of one's relationship to the land, the water, the atmosphere, and the global community is available to any who seek it here. And we love ART!!!
