Today the Ojibwe tribe live in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan in the United States and in Southern Canada. They live in Ontario, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan. They had a problem and it was that some of the tribe spoke English and some of them spoke Ojibway.

The Ojibwes had a house that was made of birchbark wood. Their house was called a Wigwam or a Waginoguns. They were made of leaves, dirt, and wood.

Interesting Facts

The most interesting facts I think about their life is that kids had toys and dolls. What I also thought was interesting was that they had a clan system. I think, the fact that there are nearly 150 different bands in Chippewa Indians is very interesting.

My thoughts

I think the Ojibwes were very cool to learn about. I liked doing this project because I could get a little creative learning about it.
