Ojibwe Waasa Inaabidaa: We Look in All Directions
A powerful in-depth portrayal of the second-largest tribe in North America, the Anishinaabe/Ojibwe (Chippewa) nation of the upper Great Lakes region. Ojibwe: Waasa Inaabidaa is a uniquely personal history of the Ojibwe culture by Ojibwe educator Thomas Peacock. Illustrated with color and historic black and white photographs, artwork, and maps, it is the story of how the Ojibwe people and their ways have continued to survive, and even thrive, from pre-contact times to the present.
"The story--dibaajimowin--told here is a story of Indian Country. It is the story of land-based cultures and our histories. It is also an amazing and wondrous set of stories told by those who dearly love their history and peoples--a great gift to us all: the scattered and dispersed leaves of our stories brought together with this generation's faces and living words."
"This fascinating introduction to the Ojibwe is recommended..."
