Description

Ojibway Heritage is the classic study by Ojibwe educator and linguist Basil Johnston. First issued in 1976 this book remains an important contribution to the understanding of Ojibwe spiritual and cultural heritage. The book is organized into chapters that cover Kitche Manitou (the Creator), Father Sun and Mother Earth, the Nature of Plants, the Nature of Animals, the world of humans, the Midewewin, the Path Without End, the Path of Souls, the Four Hills of Life, the Vision, Ceremonies, Songs, Dances, and the Incorporeal World. Traditional worldview of the Ojibwe people is told in an accessible narrative that intersperses traditional stories of legends throughout each chapter. This remains an important resource for secondary school, university, and general readers interested in Ojibwe spirituality.
