THE TRADITIONAL HISTORY AND CHARACTERISTIC SKETCHES OF THE OJIBWAY NATION

THE TRADITIONAL HISTORY              GEORGE COPWAY, SHELLEY HULAN

"The Traditional History and Characteristic Sketches of the Ojibway Nation" (1850) was one of the first books of Indigenous history written by an Indigenous author. The book blends nature writing and narrative to describe the language, religious beliefs, stories, land, work, and play of the Ojibway people. Shelley Hulan's afterword considers Copway's rhetorical strategies in framing a narrative-she considers it a form of "history, interrupted"-for a non-Indigenous readership. 

HUBBY'S REVIEW:
This book was interesting it was first published in 1850 and is really a history of his people and stories to be shared and passed down. A good way for their stories which also is part of their life to be saved to record. Was a little difficult to understand in some parts, but I just reread them. I found this to be an interesting book. He also looked at the good and bad of government plans for the Indians, not just for his Tribe but for all because sometimes Native Americans were all put together regardless of Tribe. he also goes over his thoughts of being forced to learn what they called"White man ways", language, schooling, etc.. I got this book from netgalley. I gave it 4 stars. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com
