Oshkaatisak Kikinohamaakewin is a bilingual video in Anishinaabemowin and English. Indigenous educators, Elders, and knowledge holders share their messages to youth in Northwestern Ontario that address identity, education, language, mino-bimaadiziwin (living a good life), relationships with Elders, and personal well-being.
For the title, the creators of the video asked language speakers to translate "messages to youth" into Anishinaabemowin. They arrived at "Oshkaatisak Kikinohamaakewin," which literally means "youth learning."
This film was developed at Lakehead University, which is located on the traditional territory of Fort William First Nation, signatory to the Robinson Superior Treaty of 1850 and the land on which we gather is the traditional territory of the Anishnaabeg.
