Portage Lake: Memories of an Ojibwe Childhood

Couverture
University of Alberta, 1991 - 272 pages
"The Anishinaabe (Ojibwe/Chippewa) Indians of Minnesota give the name Gabekanaansing (At the End of the Trail) to Portage Lake of Crow Wing County in Central Minnesota. In this bilingual book, Minnesota Anishinaabe elder Maude Kegg of the Mille Lacs Reservation at Vineland, near Onamia, Minnesota, reminisces about her childhood at Gabekanaansing. Building birchbark and reed-mat wigwams, boiling maple sap into syrup and harvesting turtles and wild rice are some of the activities which are related in detail by Maude Kegg. Dictated in her native language, these delightful memories provide a child's view of traditional Anishinaabe lifeways coming into contact with Euro-American settlers in the early decades of this century"--Back cover.
