The Cultural Toolbox: Traditional Ojibwe Living in the Modern World
Focusing on the traditional practices of one Ojibwe family, carried out through the seasons of the year and across the seasons of life, celebrated Ojibwe scholar Anton Treuer discusses the enduring power of Ojibwe culture and identity. “Today’s Ojibwe people have maintained a dazzling array of deep, beautiful, adaptive ways of connecting to the spiritual, natural, and human beings around them,” writes Dr. Treuer. “Variations in Ojibwe cultural practices are as diverse as their homelands, but these variations have always followed a distinct path, reflecting an identifiably Ojibwe worldview. While the world around, in, and connected to Ojibwe spaces continues to envelop myriad cultures and peoples, the Ojibwe have found a way to stay recognizable to their ancestors.”
