Proud to announce that Honour Water, a singing game that shares Anishinaabe songs for healing the waters, has launched for free on iPads through the Apple Store!
Water is vital for life and yet undergoing vast harm from toxins that impacts us all. Anishinaabe water songs are understood to heal waters through their intention. By sharing water songs in Anishinaabemowin through gameplay, the hope is for Honour Water to contribute to the healing of the Great Lakes and all waters.
People from all over are welcome to sing these songs with good intentions for the water. Players sing along with the Oshkii Giizhik Singers and follow scrolling text in Anishinaabemowin and English. Fun gameplay passes on these songs through in a way that encourages comfort with singing and learning Anishinaabemowin.
