A first conversation about the importance of Nibi, which means water in Anishinaabemowin (Ojibwe), and our role to thank, respect, love, and protect it.

Written from an Anishinaabe water protector’s perspective, the book is in dual language: English and Anishinaabemowin.

Perhaps more importantly, the board book provides an early introduction to the concept of caring for one of the world’s most important resources.
