Indian Horse Pictorial Dictionary
What the Ojibway people called the white people.

The Ojibway peoples "God"; Their Creator; "Mother Earth"
The Ojibway (also known as the Ojibwa or Ojibwe),are the largest groups of First Nations north of Mexico. They are divided between Canada and the United States.

Great dog; What they Anishinabeg called Saul's Grandfathers horse.
"...and the people called him Kitchi-Animoosh.Great dog." (pg.6)
The name of the north wind, given by the Old Ones.
"The old ones gave it a name because they believed it was alive, a being like all things." (pg.36)
Tuberculosis,or TB is a common,and in many cases lethal,infectious disease caused by various strains of mycobacteria.
Influenza, commonly known as "the flu",is an infectious disease. The most common symptoms are chills, fever, runny nose, sore throat, muscle pains, headache, coughing,fatigue and general discomfort.
Pneumonia is an inflammatory condition of the lung—affecting primarily the microscopic air sacs known as alveoli. It is usually caused by infection with viruses or bacteria

"...the older ones have come to call it Iron Sister." (pg.48)
The Percheron is a breed of draft horse that originated in the Huisne river valley in northern France
"It was a Percheron.A draught horse.A working beast..."(pg.6)

A person who sees; an observer.
"Our Medicine people would call me a seer."
In the first slide of my Pictorial Dictionary is the description of the Ojibway People. It shows a picture of an Ojibway Family portrait. I wanted to display this picture because they were wearing their traditional Ojibway clothing. The next slide is the description of Zhaunagush, which is white men (white people). Then there is a picture displaying a group of white men. Further on Aki is shown as a woman who is holding water that flows out of her hands and in to scenic forest display. Which I thought was an appropriate photo for this description. Then onto Maymaygwayseeuk which is known as water spirits. And an image of dancing water spirits. Kitchi-Animoosh is "Great dog" in Ojibway but is used for describing the horse that Saul's grandfather revives from the white men. Keewatin is the name of the north wind given by the old one. With a picture of north winds form a bear in the sky. Finally there is Tuberculosis, Influenza and Pneumonia which were all diseases that were abundant in Residential Schools. Then in conclusion the “Iron Sister” which was a spot in the basement were misbehaved kids in St. Jerome’s Residential School were sent. And then as you go along though out the presentation each picture represent what the word means and the definition and pronouncing of the word.
