All proceeds go to Nimkii Aazhibikong, a place where youth and Elders come to connect to the land, each other and to pass down the language and traditional knowledge to the next generations.

Nimkii Aazhibikong means Village of Thunder Mountain. It’s the name given by Elders to a year-round Ojibway Art, Culture and Language Revitalization Camp being built by a community of youth, Elders and organizers located north of Elliot Lake, Ontario within traditional Anishinaabeg territory. Donations will go toward building supplies.

Nimkii Aazhibikong is an independent Indigenous-led camp that is focused on connecting young people with elders for arts and cultural land-based teachings. The camp is an Ojibway language revitalization camp for youth that is working towards producing the next generation of fluent speakers on the land. Guided by elders, it is also a camp for the cultural resurgence of sustainable Indigenous practices and restoration of traditional Indigenous land and resource protection and management.

Right now Indigenous languages including Anishinaabemowin along the North Shore of Lake Huron is in crisis. Many of the speakers are Elders and many communities have no children speaking the language. We want to inspire the next generation and encourage fluency in the language. The Elders have told us this can only be fully realized while on the land.

Since June 7, 2017, we have built 3 cabins, a community cook-house, and several traditional Anishinaabe lodge structures as well as a shower house, outhouses and storage sheds. We are planning to build an additional 3 cabins, a 60’ art studio space, a 50’ roundhouse, a community garden and smokehouse.

We are not funded by governments or corporations. Our support has come from grassroots and like-minded groups.
