    Description

    Early Translation of Ojibway Native American Names. One page, 7.75" x 4", undated (circa early 19th century), in ink. A list of Ojibway personal names written by an Ojibway chief with their English translations. The writer, Maunguindous, whose name means "A Hero", has also written four other tribal given names including Awnnwoke (Thunder bird who sets in the Clouds), Wanbudick (A While Rein Deer), Uhjijauk (A Stick), and Noodinokay (A Story Creating Thunder Bird). The list has been annotated by someone other than the writer with a note which reads: "The first signature is the name of the writer, a chief of the Ojibway tribe of Indians." The Ojibway tribe was primarily located in the north-east United States and in Canada. The single leaf is mounted to a paper backing sheet. The edges are slightly chipped in areas, with a few small stains, else very good condition. From the collection of Henry E. Luhrs.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
