With insight and candor, noted Ojibwe scholar Anton Treuer traces thousands of years of the complicated history of the Ojibwe people-their economy, culture, and clan system and how these have changed throughout time, perhaps most dramatically with the arrival of Europeans into Minnesota territory. Ojibwe in Minnesotacovers the fur trade, the Iroquois Wars, and Ojibwe-Dakota relations; the treaty process and creation of reservations; and the systematic push for assimilation as seen in missionary activity, movernment policy, and boarding schools. Treuer also does not shy away from todayrs"s controversial topics, covering them frankly and with sensitivity-issues of sovereignty as they influence the running of casinos and land management; the need for reform in modern tribal government; poverty, unemployment, and drug abuse; and constitutional and educational reform. He also tackles the complicated issue of identity and details recent efforts and successes in cultural preservation and language revitalization. A personal account from the staters"s first female Indian lawyer, Margaret Treuer, tells her firsthand experience of much change in the community and looks ahead with renewed cultural strength and hope for the first people of Minnesota. Anton Treueris professor of Ojibwe at Bemidji State University and editor ofLiving Our Language: Ojibwe Tales and Oral Histories,Aaniin Ekidong: Ojibwe Vocabulary Project,Omaa Akiing, andOshkaabewis Native Journal, the only academic journal of the Ojibwe language.

ANTON TREUER is professor of Ojibwe at Minnesota's Bemidji State University and editor of the only journal of the Ojibwe language. His nine books include Everything You Wanted to Know About Indians But Were Afraid to Ask, and two were selected as "Minnesota's Best Read of the Year." He has won many awards including from the National Science Foundation, the MacArthur Foundation, the Bush Foundation, and the Guggenheim Foundation.
