Waadookodaading Students to Present Two Exhibits at Kinnamon Museum

By Rick St. Germaine

This message will notify you that the LCO Museum will host a gala event – a Waadookodaading Middle School presentation on May 21, 2024 at 4:30 pm.

Students will present the culmination of their PBL project-based learning work in creating and developing two exhibits for the LCO Museum. The Waadookodaading School has a mission that includes “community service” to the Lac Courte Oreilles Tribe. The school instills in its students a strong sense of responsibility to its heritage.

Students will present in Ojibwemowin, complete with slides of their work in organizing into groups, discussing their ideas, conducting research of actual clothing of the Anishinaabe male and female in 1787, sizing up their materials and wigs, measuring and fitting on the mannequins, and then hand-stitching their materials. They will present in the Ojibwe language and also offer translations for the audience.

The audience will see the authentic clothing of our ancestors from Odawasaga’eganing village 240 years ago. These exhibits will grace our tribal museum for over 100 years, offering the students’ great-great-grandchildren an opportunity to see their work in preserving the historic heritage of our tribe from centuries of time earlier.

Please join us at the LCO Museum at Kinnamon on May 21stat 4:30 pm. A meal will be served following the event.
