Ma’iingan: Brother Wolf

"Ma’iingan: Brother Wolf," a new documentary, airs Monday on Wisconsin Public Television.

"Ma’iingan: Brother Wolf,” a new documentary, premieres 7 p.m. Monday, March 4 on Wisconsin Public Television.

Ma’iingan, Ojibwe for “wolf,” plays an essential role in the creation traditions of the native and tribal communities surrounding Lake Superior. From the beginning, Ma’iingan walked in tandem with Anishinaabe, or Original Man, before they diverged into separate but parallel paths that have remained connected through time.

With insight from Ojibwe elders, biologists and artist Rabbett Before Horses Strickland, this new film from Wisconsin Public Television captures enduring spiritual connections with Brother Wolf, the lasting bonds and responsibilities shared between native people and the wolf species, and the opportunities and challenges presented by the reintroduction and protection of the animals across reservation lands.

“Ma’iingan: Brother Wolf” will be available for online viewing at wpt.org shortly after broadcast.
