Description

Schoolcraft's Ojibwa Lodge Stories: Life on the Lake Superior Frontier is the reissue of Henry Schoolcraft's irregular manuscript magazine, Muzzeniegun. Henry Rowe Schoolcraft (1793–1864) was an American ethnologist, born near Albany, N.Y. The contents were first issued in 1827 and contain articles, poems, and announcements on all aspects of Ojibwe life and customs. The subjects included historic battles, ceremonies, burials, fur trade, war chants and songs, totems, the effect of alcohol upon Indians, and the intertribal war between the Chippewa and Sioux.
