This is an artistic piece to highlight the different names of the full moon. These names originated within the Algonquin language region (New England to the Great Lakes area) where some of the earliest names were translated. After research and conversations with indigenous identifying persons we wanted to honor the memory of these origins and of the indigenous community while also keeping the film accessible as a starting point into this important tradition for people who are unaware of this cycle of the moon.
