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.
