For Immediate Release - November 14, 2007


Mt. Pleasant, Michigan    The Ziibiwing Center of Anishinabe Culture & Lifeways will host a very special visit from the Anishinabe Santa.  His toboggan is scheduled to land on the grounds of the Ziibiwing Center in December. You can bring the kids to tell Anishinabe Santa their wish lists and get their picture taken with the "Big Guy" on Saturday, December 1 from 10am - 5pm and Saturday, December 8 from 10am-5pm.

Anishinabe Santa dresses in American Indian inspired clothing.   He will bring coloring pages for the children and his helpers will provide storytelling and movies in the research center.  For a nominal fee, pictures of your little ones can be taken with Anishinabe Santa. Not to leave out the adults, Anishinabe Santa has asked the Ziibiwing Center gift shop to offer select merchandise discounts, as well as lunch and coffee specials in the café.  Call 989-775-4750 for more information or photo pricing details.
