Today, I’m back at the Indigenous Farming Conference in Callaway Minnesota. The conference is hosted by the White Earth Land Recovery Project and is surrounded by the idyllic Maplelag Resort. The resort is full of conversations about seed saving, solar power, foraging, and so much more. It’s early March, so we’re not yet in an official pandemic, but we’re having plenty of conversations about it! And we’re all spending extra extra time washing our hands.

It’s right after lunch and we all gather in a large room with couches to relax on as Shirley Nordrum begins her presentation…

Shirley’s presentation is called Unintended Consequences. There are good intentions when it comes to taking care of our environment, but Shirley looks at ways that that has created unforeseen results.

Erika Bailey-Johnson is committed to sustainability, honoring Mother Earth, and exposing children to Ojibwe language. A newly enrolled member of the Red Lake Nation, she's also the Sustainability Director at Bemidji State University. Rolling her passion together with her heritage, she's developed a children's book series encouraging kids to connect with nature while learning Ojibwe language.

Collaborating with Ojibwe language speakers from Red Lake, Leech Lake and White Earth, her five book series Ninisidawenimaag: I Sense Them consists of one book for each of the five senses. All artwork in the series was created by area kids. The first book I See Many Things was recently released and thanks to a collaboration with First National Bank of Bemidji, it's found its way into the hands of all kindergarteners in Bemidji.

I like to call it a community book because there's so many different people that have helped along the way. And that's the part that I think is really unique about this. - Erika Bailey-Johnson
