Wisconsin Historical Society | Indigenous Storytelling Series: Biskakone Greg Johnson

February 8 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

In Ojibwe culture, winter is storytelling season. The Wisconsin Historical Society is celebrating that by featuring Ojibwe storytellers in a four-part virtual series every Tuesday evening from Jan. 25 – Feb.15, 2022.
On Feb. 8, join us for a webinar with Biskakone Greg Johnson, a Lac du Flambeau Tribal member and teacher, advocate, and artist. Johnson is a proud member of the Lac du Flambeau band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians. He is a devoted partner and father to four beautiful children. Greg is a teacher, both in the school system and community. You can find him sharing his passion for traditional, seasonal Anishinaabe living with communities throughout the Great Lakes region. He is a hunter, gatherer, spearfisherman, and fierce advocate for treaty rights. His efforts to further sovereignty for the Anishinaabe have been featured in multiple publications. Biskakone is also an acclaimed artist and graphic designer. He has mastered the art of Ojibwe moccasin-making and is motivated to raise up the next generation of makers in this field. Biskakone’s commitment to family, ceremonies, and community will always be foremost in his life.
Cost: Free and open to the public.
