Hi there

I spoke to a Chippewan elder who lives on Georgina Island in Georgina
township, Ontario, Canada.
I was talking to her regarding a name; she felt that the name I was
asking about was Ojibwe, not Chippewa - I had understood that Ojibwe
and Chippewa were of the same ancestry?
Please excuse any ignorance on my part; I am still trying to learn !
