The Ojibwe are one of the largest tribes in North America, but most Americans know little about them. Come learn more about Ojibwe naming and coming of age rites, how the tribal language encapsulates the worldview of the people, and how it all relates to resilience and struggles of tribal people today and world we all share.

Anton Treuer (pronounced troy-er) is Professor of Ojibwe at Bemidji State University and author of 14 books. His equity, education, and cultural work has put him on a path of service around the region, the nation, and the world. He often spends time helping at traditional Ojibwe ceremonies.
