Native American Indian language
Native American genealogy
Q: I need to know what the weather was like and how
the Chippewas adapted to it to live
back before colonists. This is a
required question on a report I
have to do so if you could help I would really
A: The Chippewas (also known as the Ojibways)
live in the upper Midwest US (Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota) and further north
in Canada. Cold winters with snow, mild summers. The
weather hasn't changed too much-- you can learn more
details from any almanac.
One adaptation to the snowy weather that you might want to research is
snowshoes (aagimag, in the Ojibway language.)
You can also visit our kids page,
for more information about Ojibway clothing, food and shelter, all of
which was suited to the weather and environment.
Hope that helps, have a good day!
