The Ojibwe Native Americans



The Ojibwe people are a large Native American tribe located in North America, scattered throughout the Great Lakes Region of the United States. Although it took some time before these natives were recognized as a tribe by Europeans, their part in history and presence today can still widely be seen in Minnesota.

This large-numbered, wide reaching tribe has been known under a number of names and spellings, ranging from the now more accepted 'Ojibwe' to Ojibwa, Ojibway and the Chippewa. They speak in the Algonquin tongue, although this language is quickly vanishing from use as the culture gets diluted by modern workings.

So have a look around, and hopefully you will be able to come away with a greater knowledge of the Ojibwe presence around Minnesota, and how they have contributed to its cultural growth.
