      This book is well written and quite informative. It combines creativity and cultural tradition all in one. I was happy that it included some Ojibway in it, as in the language, and did my best to try to pronounce them. I love the artwork as well, the entire book is quite well put together. It was intriguing to learn more about Ojibway culture and their beliefs. I recommend if anyone can get their hands on this book, it might be difficult to find, that they do read it. Though do keep in mind that [...]

      The Mishomis Book The Voice of the Ojibway This book portrayed beliefs, customs, celebrations and traditions of the Ojibway people. It was done in a graphic style which added to the ethereal and spiritual tones. The ancient knowledge recorded in this book is fascinating and meshes well with other books I have read about the Ojibway. In many years of teaching Native American culture I have noticed that the Ojibway seem to have to most published writing of ancient legends. This book is arranged fr [...]

      A great introduction to the Ojibway People. The book gave me a much better foundation to start building my understanding of the Ojibway. It was a simple and quick read, that can play well for young adults and also for anyone who has a great understanding already. Very simple and yet I know there was more in the words on the pages that I could gain more from by another and another and another read through. I'm glad this book was introduced to me by a good Ojibway friend. I will read it again some [...]

      This book is very informational. This book shares traditions, culture, and journies of the Ojibwe people. There are detailed illustrations along with this book. Mishomis means Grandfather. This book would be useful in bringing diversity to an elementary classroom. The students would learn about the Ojibwe people and the cultural background, traditions, and history of the Ojibwe people.

      I loved this so much, I just had to color it :)What is so incredible to me are the shared myths of different belief systems. What I most appreciate about the Ojibwe belief system is that it seems, well, less violent than the Christian faith. As a person who believes in the symbolism of the world around us, I enjoyed learning more about the symbolism of the Ojibwe.
