Summary Lavishly designed and carefully researched, this well-written volume offers readers a rich introduction to Ojibwe history and culture. Its extensive account of Ojibwe history begins with their life before the arrival of European colonists and concludes with discussion of 21st-century life. Topics include the forced removal of Ojibwes by US and Canadian governments, reservation life, relocation to cities, and the birth of the American Indian Movement. The book also explores the Ojibwes' historic seasonal lifestyle and cultural traditions, including family life, government, beliefs, and legends. Readers will find the timeline and glossary useful, and additional resources and suggested activities provide opportunities for further learning.
