									                                       Ojibwe Culture
                                   Bemidji State University
                                   Final Exam Study Guide

Essay: You will be asked to answer one essay question. It will be one of the following:

    1. In The White Earth Tragedy Melissa Meyer claims that the process of removal
       and dispossession of the land caused a transformation of Ojibwe culture for many
       people at White Earth. It that true? How so or how not? Provide as many specific
       examples as possible from the reading and lecture material to show that you know
       how Ojibwe were dispossessed at White Earth and how that affected them.
    2. Many of the elders whose stories appear in Living Our Language speak about the
       connection of language and culture and the importance of the Ojibwe language.
       Drawing specific examples from that reading as well as any relevant lecture and
       movie material, answer this question. Why is the Ojibwe language important?
    3. In Like a Hurricane, Warrior and Smith offer a scathing criticism of AIM’s
       success in their civil (and uncivil) disobedience. Drawing specific examples from
       that reading as well as relevant lecture and movie material, critique Like a
       Hurricane. Were the authors correct in their evaluations of AIM? Why or why
