There have been several important breaks in the history of the Anicinabe people. These have broken the time line by rupturing the transmission. For a long time, we only received bits and pieces of our culture, small portions that had to be hidden, for fear that they would be taken away and destroyed. The time has come to bring out each of these small pieces and openly expose them. Each one of them is of great importance because only by bringing them back together can we reconstruct the image of who we are.
