Waagosh and Zhigaag: An Ojibwe Language Picture Book
Waagosh and Zhigaag will be an 8 1/2 x 11 inch, 64 page, full-color picture book covering beginning Ojibwe language instruction.
Boozhoo. My name is Michael Lyons and I am the author and illustrator of the Ojibwe children’s books: Dog and Ma’iingan, Boozhoo Ajidamoo, and Yea, Gimiwan: An Ojibwe Language Coloring Book. For my Kickstarter project, I will create a new Ojibwe language picture book entitled, Waagosh and Zhigaag: An Ojibwe Language Picture Book. Once it is completed, I will make it available for sale on Amazon.com.
Waagosh and Zhigaag will be an 8 ½ x 11 inch, 64 page, full-color picture book covering beginning Ojibwe language instruction for children. Readers will gain knowledge of Ojibwe terms for how to count to ten, the days of the week, months of the year, sacred medicine names, the four directions, colors, animal names, plant names, common phrases, and basic greetings. With your financial support, we can make this available to Ojibwe language learners wherever they are.
Risks and challenges
The risks and challenges to this project are minimal. I have already successfully created other books like this in the past. The challenge is making time to write and illustrate "Zhiigaag and Waagosh". I have all kinds of support from fluent speakers and so long as my computer doesn't die, I'm confident this book will be great.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
