The Ojibwe are currently the fourth largest group of American Indians in the U.S. When the early Canadian settlers first encountered the Ojibwe, they called them Sault Ste. Marie, which is the French name for Lake Superior. The French fur traders and the Ojibwe struck up a trading relationship, which continued when the English took over Grand Portage.
This movie, told in the Ojibwe language with English subtitles, details the role of the American Indians in the fur trade. This history recounts stories of voyageurs, American Indian Tribes and the rise and fall of fortunes. Watch this DVD to learn more about the Ojibwe’s involvement in the fur trade.
