A tribe of many names is still a Chippewa

The Chippewa tribes have been known by many names, the Ojibway and the Ojibwa are just a couple; but there are approximately 150 bands of the Chippewa throughout the United States and Canada.

In the early 1600's they began trade relations with the French, until the French and Indian Wars. With land cession, they began to migrate north and by 1819 there were 16 reservations in Michigan alone.

As treaty after treaty was broken by the White Man, the Chippewa continued to move. Many of them into Mexico near the town of Coahuila.

We don't want you to go....

The government didn't want the American Indians gone, but they wanted them under their control. Giving them land until precious resources were found and then once again they were moved.

When the Chippewa created a mass exodus into Mexico, it infuriated the American government, to the point that in 1865, The Battle of Dove Creek took place. The White Man was not willing to give up it's control; however, the Chippewa won the battle and settled in Chihuahua, Durango, Coahuila, Sinaloa and Sonora. By 1920, the White Man took control once again, the reservations in Mexico were eradicated by the Mexican government.

Traditional whose standards?

To hear someone say that the Chippewa today are more traditional, is not better than having called them savages.

The Chippewa, like any other human being wanted to live free, raise their family and teach them their family traits. The Chippewa like most have mothers that raise their children and see to their education. The fathers that teach the boys to hunt and provide for their families. The Chippewa are just like you an I.

Our ancestry teaches us about our past and we continue to teach it to our children in hopes that they pass it on to their children. We are all of the human race, no more no less.
