The Chippewa Tribe of Native Americans lived in the northern parts of the United States around the Great Lakes, mainly in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan, and still reside there as of 2015. They can also be found in the southern regions of Canada.
Chippewa Indians are also known as the Ojibwe or Ojibwa. These groups are one and the same. One of the largest tribes of Native Americans, many Chippewa Indians live on self-governing reservations. While a chunk of the tribe still speaks the native language, most Chippewa speak English. The remoteness of the Chippewa Indians played a part in their survival during the colonial wars and Native American genocide of the 19th century.
