Ojibway Indians of Wisconsin


It was at La Pointe or Madeline Island, where Ojibway Indians of Wisconsin had their most important village. From that location, they eventually spread out into northern Wisconsin. Others went on to Manitoulin Island. Ogima sagima led them to colonize Michigan, north Ontario and Quebec. These events happened during the Ojibway west migration to fight the white invaders!
