What is ZAAP all about?

13 Mar

Have you heard about the newest program at the Ziibiwing Center? If not, there’s no better time than now to learn about the Ziibiwing Artifact Adoption Program (ZAAP). 

Adopting an artifact, as part of the ZAAP program, is a fun and easy way to demonstrate your dedication and passion for Great Lakes Anishinabek history and culture.  Your adoption/donation will help pay for the care, maintenance, conservation, and storage of the collections at the Ziibiwing Center, plus it’s 100% tax-deductible!

Head over to the “Let’s Learn” page on this blog and learn how to become part of this exciting program! Also, check out what artifacts some sponsors have already adopted!
