“Every Wind”, c. 1910. She is an Ojibwe (aka Ojibwe, aka Ojibway, aka Chippewa, aka Annishinabe), a peoples based in much of Canada and the US, including Minnesota, Michigan and Wisconsin.
The Ojibwe peoples are historically known for their crafting of birch bark canoes, sacred birch bark scrolls, use of cowrie shells for trading, cultivation of wild rice, and use of copper arrow points. In 1745 they adopted guns from the British to use to defeat and push the Dakota nation of the Sioux to the south. The Ojibwe Nation was the first to set the agenda with European-Canadian leaders for signing more detailed treaties before many European settlers were allowed too far west. The Midewiwin Society is well respected as the keeper of detailed and complex scrolls of events, history, songs, maps, memories, stories, geometry, and mathematics. (source)
