The Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe Presents its Educational Comic Book Series

Our educational comic books, Dreams of Looking Up and A Hero’s Voice, offer valuable insights into American Indian culture in a way that appeals to the imaginations of the young and the young at heart.

FYI: What is the difference between Chippewa, Ojibway, Ojibwe, and Ojibwa? What do these words mean?
There is no difference. All these different spellings refer to the same people. In the United States more people use ‘Chippewa,’ and in Canada more people use ‘Ojibway,’ but all four of these spellings are common. They all come from an Algonquian word meaning ‘puckered,’ probably because of the tribe’s puckered moccasin style. The Ojibway people call themselves Anishinabe in their own language, which means ‘original person.’
