Ojibwe women

Ojibwe (anishinaabemowin, chippewa, ojibwa) love poem for the largest Amerindian nation in North America. Ojibwe verses to try to translate the beauty of these indians,

The Ojibwes (Chippewas, Ojibwas, Anishinaabeg) speak several dialects of this Algonquian language, one find them around the great lakes in the USA and Canada and still 55,000 of them speak their language. Half are in the usa (Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota and North Dakota), the other half are in Canada.

The Ojibwes

The Ojibwa lived on forest resources, wild rice cultivation, hunting and fishing. Their social organization was based on the nuclear family, on the existence of bands, and on the belonging to an exogamous and patrilineal clan, constituting a totem. Shamanism, sorcery (sorceries), brotherhoods (marked initiatory), was the main religious activities. Although they are parked on reserves or assimilated to national life, the Ojibwa, however, try to retain certain elements of their traditional culture.
