Gaa-pi-izhiwebak, which means &quotWhat Happened," is an Ojibwe-language collection of nonfiction reminiscences, cultural teachings, and histories told by elders from the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe. It is part of a series of monolingual books produced with Aanjibimaadizing, a program of the Mille Lacs Band that means "Changing Lives." Through the Aanjibimaadizing Project, fourteen first speakers have teamed with linguists, teachers, and Ojibwe language experts to create this new literature for Ojibwe language learners. Conceived and presented only in Ojibwe, the stories reflect a rare authenticity as they transmit cultural values, increase vocabulary, and reinforce identity. Gaa-pi-izhiwebak is intended for middle school and high school readers.
