Contents: Publisher's Note:

William w. Warren's History of the Ojibway People, written in 1852 and first published in 1885, is perhaps the most important history of the Ojibway ever written. Warren, the sone of a white man and an Ojibway woman, collected firsthand descriptions and stories from his relatives, tribal leaders, and acquaintances. He transcribed this oral history in terms that 19th-centry whites could understand, focusing on warfare, tribal organization, and political leaders. Inerspersed among his vivid descriptions of memorable battles is a wealth of information on the Ojibway people's customs, family life, totemic system, hunting methods, fur trade, and relations with other tribal groups and with the whites. W. Roger Buffalohead's introduction to this edition describes the complexities that make this a fascinating and challenging study.
