"From 1930 to 1940, A. Irving Hallowell, a professor of anthropology at the University of Pennsylvania, made repeated summer fieldwork visits to Lake Winnipeg, Manitoba, and to the Ojibwe community of Berens River on its east side. He traveled up that river several times to other Ojibwe communities as well, under the guidance of William Berens, the treaty chief at Berens River from 1917 to 1947 and eventually Hallowell's closest collaborator. Contributions to Ojibwe Studies presents twenty-eight of Hallowell's writings focusing on the Berens River Ojibwes
This collection is the first time that the majority of Hallowell's otherwise widely dispersed Ojibwe essays have been gathered into a single volume, thus providing a focused, in-depth view of his contributions to our knowledge and understanding of a vital North American aboriginal people. This volume also contributes to the history of North American anthropology, since Hallowell's approaches to and analyses of his findings shed light on his role in the shifting intellectual currents in anthropology over four decades."--pub. desc
