Seasons of Change

This chapter examines the politics of Ojibwe work in the tourist industry as the regional economy shifted from industrial capitalism to tourism in the early twentieth century. Because tourists associated the presence of Indians with an authentic wilderness experience, many Ojibwes found opportunities to work in that industry. However, tourist expectations also influenced the increasing privatization of local lands and the restriction of treaty rights that made it difficult for Ojibwes to make a living. The chapter considers how the opportunities and conflicts presented by the growth of the tourism shaped the experiences of Ojibwe workers and in the industry.
