Yajmownen

The Band hosts its own podcast, called “Yajmownen,” which means “stories” in Potawatomi. In each episode, you can hear stories of citizens reconnecting with culture, reviving traditions, and reclaiming heritage. We release an episode monthly, on the first Monday of the month. Subscribe to receive notifications of new episodes.

Our people have long known we are the Keepers of the Fire, but we were tasked with another calling, one that citizens like Gary Morseau and Jason Wesaw are fighting to fulfill. They're working beyond our lands, forging partnerships with entities like the University of Michigan to return our seeds—our ancestors—back to our people. Hear from Gary, Jason, and a representative from the University of Michigan in this month's episode of Yajmownen.
