Context clues: I think that this is a crib.
Dictionary definition: This is the Ojibwan word for cradleboard. It was built with wood and covered with an envelope made of leather. Mothers used these to carry their children.
Faith - Predictions & Inferences
I predict the Old Tallow will possibly ask her to help him do something and forget the scissors.
I infer that Moningwanaykaning means morning and wake up or get up in time to work.
