Sample text

The anishinaabe told trickster stories of the summer heart as the snow covered the red pine and the rivers froze. The old world was a rumor of demonic seasons, seldom a source of tribal inspiration, and the vicious outcome of colonial invasions, discoveries, diseases, and the territorial boundaries levied on the woodland have never been absolved in the duplicities of treaties and histories. In the seventeenth century the voyageurs and the first missionaries established a fur trading post at mooningwanekaning on Madeline Island.

The anishinaabe (the plural is anishinaabeg), the original miigis people of the woodland, heard natural wisdom in their stories, and the colors of the seasons were given to the tribes by the sun on the back of the sacred cowrie. The reflection warmed the tribes on their long migration from the eastern sea. More than five hundred years ago the miigis appeared in the sun for the last time at mooningwanekaning, or mooningwane, the place of the yellow-shafted flicker, in anishinaabe gichigami, Lake Superior, the great sea of the original five tribal families of the anishinaabe.
