About the show

Giikinoo’amaagoowinen (Teachings) series is all about sharing teachings and stories passed down from generation to generation. We also try to capture new teachings and traditions being developed across many cultures. Most of the teachings are from our community (Bois Forte Band of Chippewa in Northern Minnesota) but we’d also like to hear from you!

When: Sporadic

How-To-Submit Content

Step 1. Brain storming

Think of an interesting story you have that contains a teaching or knowledge you’d like to share. Write down highlighted topics you’d like to share or even write your own simple script. You should have enough content for at least 5 minutes.

Step 2. Recording

-For the best audio you can record in our studios here at KBFT.
-If you are unable to make it to the studio you can record your own audio via computer, smart phone, or recording device.
-Don’t worry about recording the whole piece without errors. With the magic of audio editing software we can easly clean up your audio
-Finish sentences or redo a sentence that you may have an error within.
-We are looking for real life content (it doesn’t need to be TV anchor quality)
-Have fun with it!
