Here's an Anishinaabe poem and creation story by Kimberly Blaeser, the former Poet Laureate of Wisconsin. Kimberly Blaeser is an enrolled member of the Chippewa Tribe who grew up on the White Earth Reservation. It's the story of the lowly muskrat, and it reminds us that we are constantly building new worlds - since the beginning of time and even now. Even when it doesn't feel like it.
