Early Ojibwe: Winter - Biboon

Winter - Biboon

In Winter, the ojibwe people call Biboon, families move far away from neighbors and spend time together in a looking like tipi called a wigwam. Sometimes during the winter there was not a lot of food around. The men and boys hunted and women and the girls had their own jobs, which they cooked all the food. They made a lot of the clothing also like moccosins and clothes for the men to go hunting in. During winter, the men mostly hunt for deer, elk, and moose.

When all the work is done, the children go play a game called snow-snake. Basically, the children would get a smooth wood pole, and slide it down a hill and see who goes the farthest.
