Native Lights: Biidaapi

Series produced by Ampers

The special series of Native Lights is all about connecting with our neighbors during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In Ojibwe, the word “biidaapi” means: she/he arrives laughing. We're keeping our spirits up by talking with our community, family, and friends, during this difficult time. Let's share a few minutes together and care for one another, while having a laugh.
