Anishinaabek Stories and Lifeways Interpreters
The Anishinaabek legend--the story of the devoted mother bear and her lost cubs--gives Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore its name, and the park’s landscapes and natural resources are vital to the Anishinaabek of northwest lower Michigan and their ancestors. Yet little of their story, past and current knowledge of and respect for its resources of the land, is currently part of the park’s interpretation. The park is recruiting Anishinaabek youth to help develop interpretive programs using the knowledge of their cultural patrimony and in consultation with their Tribal Elders. From these resources they can share their story and knowledge of this place with visitors through guided trail walks, distance learning programs, social media, and outreach into the local communities.
