Paths of the People
The Ojibwe in the Chippewa Valley
Tim Pfaff


Anishinabe, Saulteur, Ojibwe, Chippewa—all these are names of a people who have lived in the Chippewa Valley of Wisconsin for the past three centuries. Ojibwe oral tradition speaks of life as a circular path, with parents passing on knowledge to children and grandchildren. Over the past 300 years, contact with Europeans and settlement by non-Native Americans have forced them to adapt to survive. The challenges each generation has faced —whether at treaty grounds, boarding schools, or boat landings—have influenced what knowledge has been passed down, what paths taken.

Tim Pfaff, curator of Public Programs at the Chippewa Valley Museum, served as principal writer for the five-person team that developed the Paths of the People project.
