Explorations in Sights and Sounds
Employing a broad multi-disciplinary approach which includes history, anthropology, economics, demography, ecology, and political science, Meyer, a U.C.L.A. historian, has created a sensitive and sweeping analysis of the creation and metamorphosis of the Anishinaabeg ("Chippewa" or "Ojibwe”) who eventually located in contemporary Minnesota on the White Earth Reservation. Eschewing stereotypes of Indians as mere victims of Euro-American history, Meyer shows how the Anishinaabeg -- themselves internally heterogeneous -- transform, adapt, innovate and respond according to their own interests and to changes around them.
