Description

The Ojibwa Indians is one of the titles in Bridgestone Books series, Native Peoples, especially written for elementary students. This title is authored by Bill Lund who consulted with Clifford Trafzer, professor of Native American Studies. All titles in the series follow a similar format with 8 sections that cover the home, food and clothing; the family; religious (spiritual) life; government; spearfishing; wild rice; and an excerpt from the Creation Story. The book contains a simplified map of North America, a page of facts about the Ojibwe in the past and today, glossary, additional reading, and an index. A Hands-On activity is included and features a simple method for making wild rice. Colour and archival photographs appear on every other page and are accurately captioned. The content in Religious Life correctly stresses that the members of the Midewiwin served the Ojibwe people by providing healing. The author is careful to indicate that the Ojibwe have a vibrant culture today as they did in the past and they live today in Canada and the United States. This is an excellent book for grades three to six that explains the basics of Ojibwe (Anishinabe) culture. Junior Spring 2012. Guided Reading Level: N; Accelerated Reader Level: 3.4.
