1. Anishinaabe (Wikipedia). Anishinaabe is the autonym for a group of culturally-related indigenous peoples who are resident in what are now Canada and the United States. They also include the Odawa, Saulteaux, Ojibwe (including Mississaugas), Potawatomi, Oji-Cree, and Algonquin peoples. Anishinaabe is often mistakenly considered a synonym of Ojibwe; however, it refers to a much larger group of tribes. (Submitted on August 9, 2020, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
2. The Ojibwe Migration. A larger group of Ojibwe, which consisted primarily of families of the Crane, the Bear, the Catfish, the Loon, and the Marten and Moose clans, blazed a path westward along the southern shores of Lake Superior. They stopped at Grand Island, near the Pictured Rocks, and again at L’Anse Bay, until they finally made their way to Chequamegon Bay in present-day Wisconsin.
