On August 5, 2021, the Ottawa Public Library-Library and Archives Canada Joint Facility was named Ādisōke by members and Elders of Kitigan Zibi Anishinābeg and the Algonquins of Pikwakanagan First Nation, on behalf of the Anishinābe Algonquin Nation. Ādisōke is an Anishinābemowin word that refers to the telling of stories. A new video features Elders and members of the Anishinābe Algonquin Nation sharing what Ādisōke means to them.
