About Dibaajimowin

Dibaajimowin was created as a way to share unique historical information and stories with those seeking to know more about the rich culture of the people. The artistic efforts of the colorized photos are meant to provide a vibrant touch to show that the indigenous people of history were alive and bursting with color and character. It is a labor of love and I hope you enjoy the content and find ways to use it and share it with others.
