Early Ojibwe Winter- Biboon
By: Ricardo P.
In the winter all the people spread their wigwams out so all the family groups were alone. Boys and men hunted and trapped meat for the family. Then women dried extra meat for later over a fire.
One activity the Ojibwe did in Winter was story-telling. Children sat around the fire to hear the elders tell tales. Also, children played in the snow with toboggans and snowshoes. They also had a game called snow-snake were they slid a thin piece of wood on the snow to see who's went further. While the kids were playing, women made clothes like jackets, moccasins, and leggings.
