Alvina Michano (Yaadsookenid Gaa-gii-bzindwaad)

Alvina recounts the valuable lessons and recipes for living that are contained in our aadsookaanan. Recalling the ability of her father, Camille Nabigon, to use our aadsookaanan – and other stories – to provide guidance and pass-on knowledge, Alvina believes we must take a conscious role in ensuring that these ways are not lost.

She is aware that our Biigtigong Nishnaabe way of being is held inside of our aadsookaanan. Alvina is hoping to make contributions which help ensure that our children are once again raised surrounded by our aadsookaanan.
