Title: Wings and Seeds: The Zaagkii Project
Url: http://wingsandseeds.org/
Publisher: Cedar Tree Institute
Description: The Cedar Tree Institute, the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community and the United States Forest Service have collaborated to create a greenhouse, build bee and butterfly houses, and plant dozens of native species in Upper Michigan since 2008. The Cedar Tree Institute, which works specifically with Native American communities, describes this project on this website as "an intentional connection between the restoration and healing of the earth with the renewal of the human spirit." This specific project, entitled Wings and Seeds, is a reference to the fruits and vegetables that need to be pollinated by bees, butterflies, and other insects. Visitors will find the videos of children and youth participating in the projects to be quite informative and engaging. The "Recent Zaagkii News" section on the right side of the homepage has a link to a PDF of the "Zaagkii Booklet", which explains the motivations of the Secrets of the Monarch project. The site is rounded out by an article on the Ethnobotany Project that also includes 24 recorded interviews of Ojibway elders discussing traditional plants.
