9780873513524: Chippewa Families: A Social Study of White Earth Reservation, 1938 (Borealis Books)

During the summer and fall of 1938 Mary Inez Hilger, a sister of the Order of St. Benedict, lived on the White Earth Indian Reservation in northwestern Minnesota while she gathered data about housing conditions. Her work portrays both the traditional lifeways of 150 Chippewa families and the adaptations they made at a time of tremendous cultural change. In a series of interviews, she collected personal stories and a wealth of material about living conditions, social life, and material culture on the reservation. Her research, commissioned by the Bureau of Indian Affairs as part of a survey of the Chippewa reservations in Minnesota, became the basis for her dissertation in social science, first published in 1939.

About the Author:

Sister M. Inez Hilger (1891-1977), an anthropology professor at the College of St. Benedict in St. Joseph, Minnesota, carried out extensive fieldwork among the Ojibway on reservations in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan as well as the native populations of Asia and both North and South America. She is also the author of Chippewa Child Life (Minnesota Historical Society Press, 1992).

From Library Journal:

Hilger lived with 150 Chippewa families at Minnesota's White Earth Reservation in 1938 while gathering information about housing conditions. The numerous interviews she conducted gave her remarkable firsthand information and insight into the lives of the inhabitants, which she published a year later. This edition also contains introductions by a historian and a literature professor, who analyze the text in terms of both of those fields.
