The Chippewa Indians have about 150 different bands (which includes the turtle mountain band) of Indians in the US. In fact, the Chippewa are one of the largest Native American Indian tribes in the United States. The people of this Northeast American Indian tribe are also referred to as Ojibwarich, Ojibway, and Ojibwe. Their culture has evolved over the years and now allows both men and women who seek to become leaders to be elected as chiefs. The reservations where they live now also function like independent countries with separate schools and law enforcement. Their houses, their diet, their clothing and jewelry and even how their kids are taught have all evolved through the centuries. What all of this change means to the Chippewa is that preserving the history of the tribe is more important than ever. Facts and interesting information about how these Indians lived is listed below.
