According to the Leech Lake Tribal College Library Blog, I Am Anishinaabe, a short documentary by Savannah Parisian, a Anishinaabe student from Minnesota, won an award from Leech Lake Tribal College last year. In the documentary, Parisian talks about her understanding of her heritage and tradition.

The video lacks technical sophistication, but don't be fooled: by seeing the world through this young girl's eyes, one gets to live through an experience shared by many Native youths, and to appreciate the importance of the Native tradition in today's world.
