Join cunning Waagosh (Fox) as he finds ever more creative ways to trick rabbits; the famous Gaazhagens (Cat), who manipulates children and entertains their grandmother; and a menagerie of animals engaged in sport, game, and life lessons of all kinds. This is Ojibwe entertainment at its finest. Agindaasodaa (let's read)!
