Maada-gan-ji-ge Maada-gan-ji-ge We are talking about someone eating - as in the 14th Annual Food Taster Friday, November 7, 2014 from 5 - 7 PM at D.J. Jacobetti Complex - NMU Maada-gan-ji-ge has a tickle bone underlay, a significant characteristic of the Anishinaabe Language. The term is meant to elicit fun, smiles, community, and partnership. Just like a healthy family. At one level of understanding the term means, he/she is beginning to eat. And the actual chomp into delicacies. This is the basic premise. Other layers include observation, taste, or the experience of trying something new and original.
