Who were the Ojibwa?

The Ojibwa and Chippewa Woodland Native Americans are the same tribe. Some of the other ways their name has appeared is Ojibweg, Ojibwey, Otchipwe, and Chippeway. This tribe called themselves "original men". They lived in the northern Great Lakes Region. They were skilled hunters and trappers. They rarely used horses or hunted buffalo. They lived in clams, and taught their children using all kinds of fun and interesting games. Welcome to the Woodland Ojibwa/Chippewa in Olden Times.
