Mindjimendamowin is a short documentary film that highlights the journey of a young, contemporary Anishinaabe man in a birch bark canoe. Our young man follows the Old Shore Indian Trail (now US 23) carved out by his ancestors along the shores of Lake Huron. The film showcases the natural beauty of NE Michigan as well as educating the audience on the historical sites and oral stories along the route from Saginaw Bay to Mackinaw City. Mindjimendamowin uses poetry, storytelling, and music as well as traditional narration from Native American elders to tell this story.
