For millenia, Anishinaabe have utilized phenological events coupled with traditional knowledge to keep track of time. For the Anishinaabe, the happenings of the world help to influence the naming of the months of the year.

The U.S. uses the "Gregorian" calendar, which is a solar calendar consisting of 12 months. Traditionally, the Anishinaabe followed a lunar calendar, which is 13 moons long. The timing of each dibiki-giizis (moon) corresponds to important events in the cycle of life and nature.
