Who Are the Chippewa Indians?

The Chippewa, or Ojibwe, Indians have six different communities or bands in Wisconsin: The Bad River Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians, The Lac Courte Oreilles Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians,  The Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians, The Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians, The Sokaogon Chippewa Community, and The St. Croix Chippewa Community.  Click on any of the bands to view their website.

The Chippewa call themselves Anishinabe in their own language, which means "original person".

Ojibwe or Chippewa artists are known for their beautiful beadwork, birch bark boxes, baskets and dreamcatchers.
