The Ojibwe language video and poster were developed as part the Shared Vision initiative, an effort to encourage the Bemidji-area community to work together and expand social, economic, education and leadership opportunities for all people.
One goal of Shared Vision is to place Ojibwe and English signage in public places. The videos and poster help in reaching that goal.
