Ojibwa Narratives Of Charles and Charlotte Kawbawgam and Jacques LePique, 1893-1895

"Ojibwa Narratives Of Charles and Charlotte Kawbawgam and Jacques LePique, 1893-1895" Edited by Arthur P. Bourgeois. Recorded with Notes by Homer H. Kidder

Ojibwa Narratives presents a fresh view of an early period of Ojibwa thought and ways of life in Michigan's Upper Peninsula and the south shore of Lake Superior. This fascinating collection of fifty-two narratives features, for the first time, the tales of three nineteenth-century Ojibwa storytellers-Charles and Charlotte Kawbawgam and Jaques LePique-collected by Homer H. Kidder.


By the late nineteenth century, typical Ojibwa life had been disrupted by the influx of white developers. But these tales reflect a nostalgic view of an earlier period when the heart of Ojibwa semi-nomadic culture remained intact, a time when the fur trade, together with seasonal roving, traditional transportation, and indigenous practices of child rearing, religious thought, art, and music permeated daily life.
