(p.86) Chapter Four From Landlords to Laborers
Seasons of Change

This chapter investigates what it meant for Ojibwes to become laborers on lands that were once their own and workers in an industry that depended on cessions of their land and timber for its success. It shows how Ojibwe men forged new expressions of identity and asserted their self-determination through their labor. Their position as indigenous people working on dispossessed lands rendered the meaning of their labor different from that of Euro-American workers.

Keywords:   Ojibwe, labor, land, cession, lumber industry, logging, identity, self-determination
