Overview

This is the story of the Anishinaabe, or Ojibwe people, who have lived on the North American continent for many thousands of years. Beginning in the dim past and continuing to the present, Ojibwe: We Look in All Directions chronicles in text, photography, and illustrations the saga of a still vibrant and evolving people, still strong in their ways. What is known of Ojibwe origins begins soon after the last ice age, recorded by their Lenape ancestors on bark tablets and song sticks in an epic poem, the Wallum Olum. The Wallum Olum describes an eastward journey across the Rocky Mountains and the Great Plains to the eastern Woodlands, where the Lenape settled along the Delaware River. From there they branched out to become several distinct tribal nations. The Ojibwe lived for untold generations in the St. Lawrence River Valley in what is present-day Newfoundland. There they were told in a series of prophecies of their future, including a westward migration. This westward journey took over five hundred years, leading them at last to Moningwunakauning -- place of the golden-breasted woodpecker. Known today as Madeline Island (just offshore Bayfield, Wisconsin), Moningwunakauning is the great spiritual homeland of the Ojibwe people. Eventually the Ojibwe developed communities in which they continue to live today, in Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, and southern Canada. The Ojibwe are a people as old as stone. And they will be here forever. They will be here because they are part of a much larger story of their own weaving -- a story foretold by their ancestors that is lived by all those who travel the good road. And so the story begins.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Companion to the WDSE-TV (Duluth, MN) television series of the same name, this book presents a variety of information about the Ojibwe people of the upper Midwest. About 600 years ago, their ancestors migrated from the Atlantic coast to areas now part of the United States and Canada, including Ontario, Manitoba, North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan. Using interview excerpts, photos, maps, artwork, historical analysis, and their own personal stories, Peacock an Ojibwe educator with a doctorate from Harvard and photographer Wisuri present the past and present of this diverse group as well as speculations on their future. These disparate elements are woven together to form a unified whole. Footnotes and a bibliography indicate scholarly authority. This fascinating introduction to the Ojibwe is recommended for public libraries and others with regional interest. Gwen Gregory, Colorado Coll.
