On the Lac Courte Oreilles reservation, near Lake Superior in the northwestern corner of the state, is a K-8 school called Waadookodaading (“a place where people help each other”), where Ojibwe children are taught, in their ancestral language, a curriculum that combines federal and state educational requirements with traditional culture. For instance, the kids study biology using fish they’ve speared, and the wild rice harvest becomes a way to learn how to measure volumes. But the COVID epidemic, which has hit Native Americans harder than any other group in the U.S., has posed special problems for the school. – The Guardian
