Drouillard is the writer behind a new column, “Nibi Chronicles.” Nibi is the Ojibwe word for water. A direct descendant of the Grand Portage Band of Ojibwe, she lives and works in Grand Marais on Minnesota’s North Shore of Lake Superior.
Drouillard said she hopes to infuse her monthly feature with ideas rooted in the interconnections that are a crucial part of how she views the natural world.
“The Ojibwe way, the Anishinaabe way is a very holistic way of looking at the world,” she said. “Everything is connected, and that includes other cultures, other people and certainly other bodies of water. And there’s a lot to be learned, I think, from Ojibwe history and culture.”
