Frances Densmore "transformed the Chippewa customs from the habit of strange and faraway tribe to the daily ways of real people with ineresting personalities," writes Nina Marchetti Archabal in her introduction to the Borealis Books reprint of this classic work. Chippewa Customs, first published in 1929 by the Smithsonian Institution's Bureau of AMerican Ethnology, gives accurate, detailed descriptions of the tribal cusoms, history, legends, traditions, art, music, economy, and leisure activities of the Chippewa (Ojibway) Indians of the United States and Canada.
