    A turtle has 13 sections on its back,
    and, there are also 13 moons in a calendar year

    When the Anishinaabeg people speak to others about the passage of time,
    they refer to what is going on, and, what is happening around them,
    in terms of the types of events, they see around them,
    within Mother Nature.

    They will utilise phrases or words which are used to refer to the lunar cycles,
    which make references to what is happening, or what is occurring with the animals, earth, and, plants
    which are in season.

    The traditional Ojibway / Ojibwe / or Ojibwa calendar years follows a 13 moon lunar cycle,
    however, when 'white men, or white women and, white children' colonized their areas,
    and, pushed them onto reserves,
    a 12 month calendar was adapted.

    When 2 moons, fall in one calender month, the 2nd is known as a blue moon cycle - and, is called The Great Spirit Moon
    when no moon, falls in one calendar month, this is known as a black moon


    The names of each full moon will differ from area to area, from place to place,
    however, all of them, are heavily influenced by the animal activity, natural phenomena, along with the cultural beliefs, and, cultural practices
    that are a part of that area, or region.
