PALISADE — Renowned storyteller Dr. Michael Migizi Sullivan will share traditional Ojibwe stories as part of an Ojibwe Legends Storytelling event at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 26, at Long Lake Conservation Center, 28952 438th Lane in Palisade.

The event will feature an Aadizookaan — a sacred story often about a legend or myth — in this case Wenabozho, a historical and spiritual icon of the Ojibwe-Anishinaabeg. Sullivan will first tell the stories in Anishinaabemowin (Ojibwe) and then in English, a release said.

Prior to the storytelling, registrants are invited to an hour-long naturalist-guided nature hike beginning at 4:30 p.m. Hors d’oeuvres and drinks will be served at 5:30 p.m. with the storytelling beginning at 6:30 p.m.

“Being able to provide the people of Aitkin County, and beyond, the opportunity to get a glimpse into both the rich history and vibrant modern Ojibwe culture is an honor,” Dave McMillan, Long Lake manager, said in the release. “I hope to see a lot of young faces in the audience.”

The event is free and open to everyone. In-person attendance is limited to the first 200 people, but the event will also be available via Zoom. Preregistration is required. All attendees are required to wear a mask while indoors.
