Bnaakwii Giizis

Sunday will be the beginning of bnaakwii giizis, or “falling leaves moon”. This month from the Ojibwe lunar calender marks the shift from last month’s waabagaa giizis (changing leaves moon). I was impressed last month, the first day of changing leaves moon brought the first colorful leaves I had seen this year. Soon all of the leaves will fall, and we will once again be able to see in the woods. While I love fall, and the changing leaves, I am excited for the winter to come!

The leaves have changed, and are ready to start falling.
