On Thursday, October 5 at 6:30 p.m., Dr. Em Loerzel will join us in person and virtual on the library Facebook and YouTube. Loerzel will discuss The Humble Horse Organization and the history of how it came to be. For generations, our Ojibwe communities worked in tandem with these horses. In the 1970s, there were only 4 left, and currently, there are an estimated 150, making it critical that we help these horse relatives. In early 2022, a small, Ojibwe-led group rallied together a large community of supporters to help bring 6 horse relatives from Ontario home to their southern ancestral homelands of Western Wisconsin. Today, we are dedicated to the preservation, education, and reconnection of the Ojibwe Pony. For indigenous people, by indigenous people. No ponies will be at the library, but you can meet the ponies here.
