We Are All Related

I was inspired to create this poster after watching a “Word of the Day” video from James Vukelich. In it, he explains the meaning of the Ojibwe word, Gidinawendimin, which translates in English to “We are all related.” He says that we are all connected, and I agree. As James Vukelich says, “Every single action that is happening right now is affecting someone who may no longer be here and someone who has not yet arrived.”
Minneapolis parks would not be what they are today without the help of our ancestors, or without the help of people today who love, enjoy, and take care of the parks. Because, we are all related, and every single action we do is going to affect the future of Minneapolis Parks for future generations.
