N'ziibiimnaan - Our River [Film]

In the Summer of 2016, Chief Duncan Michano of Biigtigong Nishnaabeg ( formerly known as Ojibways of the Pic River First Nation ) realized one of his dreams and led a 10-day canoe trip on the entire 212 kilometre Biigtig Siibii ( Pic River ) to honour his ancestors who were here before him. The Biigtig Siibii has been a paddling route, a highway, and much more for generations of Biigtigong Nishnaabeg.

N’ziibiimnaan means ' Our River ' in Nishnaabemowin. It is Their River.

Chi-Miigwetch to everybody who made the trip possible.

Inspiring! Would like to join you for a trip. One of the first places I remember as a child was Camp 5 and Caramat. Haven't been back since we moved to Thunder Bay when I was 6 years old (1958).
