Description

Living Our Language: Ojibwe Tales and Oral Histories features ten Ojibwe elders telling stories, legends, and reminiscences in their language. On the facing page, an English translation is provided. The author provides a brief biography and photograph of each of the elders from Leech Lake, White Earth, Mille Lacs, Red Lake, and St Croix Reservations in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Stories include When Wenabozho Decapitated the Ducks, When Wenabozho Played Baseball, and Why Nenabozho is so Smart. Some elders talk about their childhood, going to school, the first time they saw a White Man and automobile, berry picking and hunting rabbits. Several others talk about the importance of Ojibwe language, the spiritual significance of the drum, and the Ojibwe connection to the earth. This is an important resource for Ojibwe language and culture study.
