Dimii'gamiwewidang's Song

This print, which is based on an acrylic on paper titled Apenimowin (which is the Ojibwe word for trust, or confidence), depicts the spirit of Maang (loon), who is the totemic patron of Dimii'gamiwewidang (He Whose Voice Resounds Across The Lake), an old Anishinaabe ogimaa (chief), member of Maang Doodem (the Ojibwe Loon clan)

Dimii'gamiwewidang, sensing he will soon be united with his forebears, paddles his wiigwaasi-jiimaan (birch bark canoe) across the tranquil, transparent water of Gichigami, the Great Lake.

Dimii'gamiwewidang's soul is calling out to his spirit-helper, and even the Nibiinaabewag (Sleep Spirits that lurk underwater), and Makadeshigan, the black bass who resides deep down in the Underworld - yes even the bagwajininiwag, the little magic men who dance on the sandy shores of the lake -, get startled by Dimii'gami's high-pitched spirit-voice. The sound of the old man's soul echoes across the darkening lake, blending with the melancholic cry of the distant loon...
