Introducing little Miss Gabriella Maud from Skownan First Nation.

 

Gabriella was the youngest participant of Skownan’s “Let’s Speak Anishinaabemowin” Language Revitalization Activity with Mentor Ruth Nepinak.

At the Treaty 2 Territory Indigenous People’s Day event this week in Wasagaming, Gabriella came up to the mic and introduced herself in Anishinaabemowin, where is from and her clan. She was at the event as our youngest performer with her Drum Group the Oo’ Day Mina (Strawberry) Singers.

It’s our Abinoonjiaag like Garbriella who are going to save our language and keep It alive! This little girl is special. She sits at the drum and belts out songs with her beautiful, powerful little voice.

“She has great Matriarchs, her Koko Marsha Maud who also works at the daycare centre where Gabriella attends and teaches Anishinaabemowin. Gabriella’s Great Koko, Rita Maud also teachers the little ones the language” shared Youth Mentor Ruth Nepinak of Skownan.

 

Ruth hopes to continue Language Revitalization Activities for the Children and Youth.

Our Abinoonjiaag are sacred gifts from Creator; we are so honoured to know Gabriella. May Creator bless and always keep her safe.

Ah-bi-ji-zhoo-miing-we-nin Gabriella & Oo’ Day Mina Singers!
