Heard it on Rainy Lake of the Woods Project

About the Project

The Heard it on Rainy Lake of the Woods project is a Seven Generations Education Institute initiative geared at creating teaching materials for Anishinaabemowin learners. 

As part of the project, founder of SayItFirst Mike Parkhill interviewed 26 Treaty #3 elders to share their experiences of growing up in the area. What began as a teaching resource resulted in Life Is Not Easy: Laughter Means Survivala beautiful collection of funny, painful and touching stories.

This book features both English and Anishinaabemowin translations for everyone to enjoy.
