Overview

The Ojibwe have lived in North America for hundreds of years. These native peoples originally grew crops, gathered wild rice, and tapped maple trees for their sap. But in 1783, when the United States gained its independence, it simultaneously gained control of the Ojibwe homeland. Government leaders forced the Ojibwe to live on reservations, sent Ojibwe children to boarding schools, and made them give up their language and traditions. In spite of many hardships, the Ojibwe have maintained their proud heritage. They enjoy a thriving modern community while honoring traditions of the past.
