In September, journalist Mary Annette Pember visited Madeline Island, the largest of the Apostle Islands located in the Wisconsin area of Lake Superior, to learn more about the Madeline Island Jingle Dress Project ahead of Treaty Day. On that day, real-life jingle dress dancer Fawn Youngbear-Tibbets of the White Earth Band of Ojibwe operated a 12-foot jingle dress dancer puppet, which served as a healing and conspicuous symbol and reminder of Ojibwe history and presence.
