Overview

Cary Miller’s Ogimaag: Anishinaabeg Leadership, 1760–1845 reexamines Ojibwe leadership practices and processes in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. At the end of the nineteenth century, anthropologists who had studied Ojibwe leadership practices developed theories about human societies and cultures derived from the perceived Ojibwe model. Scholars believed that the Ojibwes typified an anthropological “type” of Native society, one characterized by weak social structures and political institutions. Miller counters those assumptions by looking at the historical record and examining how leadership was distributed and enacted long before scholars arrived on the scene. Miller uses research produced by Ojibwes themselves, American and British officials, and individuals who dealt with the Ojibwes, both in official and unofficial capacities. By examining the hereditary position of leaders who served as civil authorities over land and resources and handled relations with outsiders, the warriors, and the respected religious leaders of the Midewiwin society, Miller provides an important new perspective on Ojibwe history.

Editorial Reviews

CHOICE

"Ogimaag had to reflect the views of family leaders who made up village councils, women's councils, and the warriors. However, they had a great deal of decision-making power. The view of Chippewa society that emerges is of a complex society that was fluid, connected, spiritually based, and consensus dominated."—G. Gagnon, CHOICE

— G. Gagnon

Minnesota History

"Miller has written an important political and social history of a region all too often ignored by scholars interested in the early history of North America."—Michael Witgen, Minnesota History
