Other Cool Facts
They lived near the great lakes mostly concentrated around lake superior. Later during the fur trade they moved west.
The adult men had meetings to try to come to a consensus about the problems. They also had their village split up into 7 clans named after animals. This helped them stay organized. The seven clans were: crane and loon they were in charge of government, the fish they were in charge of teaching children skills and history, the bear they were like a modern day police they also discovered new herbs and medicines from plants, the hoof clan they made sure of proper housing and they organized recreational activities, the marten they were the warrior and hunting clan, the bird were very spiritual.
They had no final say in meetings but they could attend and give opinions. They cleaned, sang, gathered food, and child care/taught. Over all
they were respected.

They hunted and fished for food, farmed a small amount and traded with other communities. They used wood and hide and stones for tools, clothing and shelter.
They had 2 clans for government, the crane and loon. These clans worked together to come up with the best political decisions, and provide a balanced government.
You had to own a house to participate in decision making.
The Anishinabe lived with their extended family in wigwams and small huts. Their primary clothing was made out of deerskin. Fish was their primary food, and to travel they made birch bark canoes. The Hoof clan made sure of proper housing & organized recreation.
