People & Wolves ™ A Wisconsin Story of Coexistence

The trailer is soon to be out!

For centuries, the Ojibwe have lived alongside their brother Ma’iingan, who we know in English to be the wolf. In February 2021, a Brutal assault, a hunt on their wolf relative, stirs emotion and grief for Ma’iingan as they know what happens to him will happen to them.

A Wisconsin Story of Coexistence.  It is a richly diverse tapestry, a story told by dedicated people.
