Manito Ahbee Aki:
The place where the Creator sits
Boohzoo Aniin! Travel back in time to experience Anishinaabe culture, community and teachings in Minecraft: Education Edition.
Explore three distinct lessons with your students to help them understand the Anishinaabe Worldview through teachings from Knowledge Keepers. Learn about how to leverage these resources from the authors of this world, the Louis Riel School Division’s Indigenous Education team.
Part 1: The Forks

Part 2: The Petroforms
Students will learn about the Bannock Point Petroforms found in Manito Ahbee. These are human-made rock formations of animal and character shapes from the Anishinaabe Peoples’ history and culture.
Part 3: Thriving Communities
Students will learn about important values and factors that foster a healthy and thriving way of life by building a flourishing community and creating food sovereignty through farming and a bison hunt.
