Beautiful artwork helps illuminate the daily lives of the Anishinabe, or "first people", also known as the Chippewa or Ojibwa. Living in the Western Great Lakes region, the Anishinabe adapted to each season by changing camp locations to better suit the changing weather. The importance of family, community, and cooperation is apparent as fascinating text describes:

- clan and camp life
- camps for different seasons and activities
- how wigwams were built
- hunting and gathering
- clothing
- the roles of men and women
- celebrations, games, and leisure
