This article is dedicated to the memory of Marion Larkman who passed away peacefully on December 18, 2006. She was born on May 19, 1926 on the Curve Lake First Nations Reserve and raised on a Métis settlement at Burleigh Falls, Ontario. Marion was a trapper, served in the military during the Second World War, and was a mother of twelve children and an active member of the Métis Nation of Ontario. In recent years, Marion dedicated her energies to preserving and protecting Métis history, values, traditions and pride in Métis arts and culture.
Dibaajimowin was created as a way to share interesting and unique stories and other information about the Metis and Ojibwe people (and others) so that these can be used by our guests to educate themselves and others about the history, culture, and language of the people.
