You've seen subscription boxes for things like dog toys and treats to clothing and food. Now there's a subscription box for teachers and families to spread Indigenous knowledge to our smallest learners.

"I'm a tribal member of the White Earth Nation here in Minnesota and I worked there for about 30 years in childcare," she said. "There was always a void around bringing culture in the classroom. Sometimes teachers, they don't have time for that sometimes if they're non-Native themselves. They're not comfortable with that."

That's where the Indigebox comes in. It's a seasonal subscription box for kids from birth to 8 years old, filled with lesson plans and hands-on activities teaching Ojibwe culture, language, traditions, and history.
