Miijim (Food) Cards Project

Students from several schools in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, joined together to research and create Miijim (Food) Cards as a classroom project. Each card features a hand-drawn miijim item available at the Brimley Bay Mills Farmer's Market, paired with the names of each food item in Anishinaabemowin. This project came about after the students visited their local market, which left them wondering if there was a way to incorporate their culture and language more fully into this important hub for the community. 

This project was created in partnership with the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians, MSU Extension, and the Tribal Food Sovereignty Collaborative, with translation services generously provided by "Aamookwe," Amy McCoy.
