Living Our Language: Ojibwe Tales and Oral Histories- Anton Treuer 272 pgs

"Based on interviews Treuer conducted with ten elders - this anthology presents the elders' stories transcribed in Ojibwe with English translation on facing pages. These stories contain a wealth of information, including oral histories of the Anishinaabe people, personal reminiscences, educational tales, and humorous anecdotes. Treuer's translations of these stories preserve the speakers' personalities, allowing their voices to emerge from the page."
