Noongom (today), August 13, is International Left-Handers Day, a awareness raising day that originally began in the United Kingdom to call attention to the challenges faced by the approximately 10% of the population who are"lefties" in a society predominantly engineered to right-handedness.
The Handedness Research Institute was started by Indiana University anthropologist Martha K. Holder, whose personal Indian University site contains a list of famous left-handed individuals.
According to Nichols and Nyholm's A Concise Dictionary of Minnesota Ojibwe, namanjii is the Anishinaabemowin term meaning to be left-handed. Namanjinik is the word for left hand.
While lefties are sometimes left out of a lot of designs (think of those single-sided desks in many classrooms), they should get some love noongom and a lot more consideration in the future.
