“We’re excited to announce that Wayne Valliere and several students from Lac du Flambeau Public School will be joining us in Madison on Friday, February 1, at 1:00pm to host the 2019 Ojibwe Winter Games @ UW-Madison!

Please join us at the Mendota Room of Dejope Residence Hall for a short introduction to the games as Wayne and his students discuss the work to celebrate and sustain traditional winter sports in Lac du Flambeau. We’ll then head outside to learn the games of snow snake, hoop and spear, and atlatl on the shores of Lake Mendota” (http://diversity.wisc.edu/2019-ojibwe-winter-games-coming-to-the-shores-of-lake-mendota-february-1/).
