Early Ojibwe by: Adam J. Kurdi


Snow Activities

The Ojibwe children liked to play in the snow. They raced on snowshoes, played the snow snake game and had lots of fun playing with each other. They also slid down hills on toboggans and and tree bark like sleds. They also gathered around a fire to hear their elders tell stories that had been handed down generation to generation.


The Ojibwe had a hard time finding food. So they lived away from other families because the animals were spread out so they could get food. The families hunted separately so they could each feed their families.
