Ojibwe Music

This post is a re-post from 2012.

This post is a condensed version of a research paper I did back in 2005 in grad school. I had the opportunity to put together an ethnography project.  Being that I live in Duluth, MN, which is so close to the Ojibwe reservations, I chose to research and write about the Ojibwe Native American culture and music.  I spent a lot of time researching, reading, listening, viewing videos about their culture, and attending an amazing, colorful powwow.  With everything I’ve learned, I have decided to share a portion of the research paper section on music and how it relates to my work as a music therapist in the community.  If anyone is interested in other areas of this research paper, contact me and I will share them.   In addition, I am very open to any comments, suggestions, or corrections to my research.  I tried to gain a thorough perspective of the Native American culture, specifically the Ojibwe people.  But, as most are aware, there is a lot of information out there.
