Maple sugar

In the spring time the Ojibwe men went to hunt wile the women was doing the process of making maple sugar. The first thing they did was making a big whole in the maple tree then they put a wooden spout into each whole. So then the syrup started to drip into the wooden spout. Then there was a other job witch was delivering containers of sap to the sugar house. So then the children pored the sap into kettles over burning fires.

The first thing the Ojibwe did was constructed a frame from cedar.Then they rapped birch bark around the bottom and sides of the frame and sewed it tight using twine made of spruce roots. The last things they had to do was sealed the seams in the bark with spruce gum. The men also helped with this job as well as the children did to.
