4. Thanks!

As a Minnesotan who grew up near a reservation, know many Ojibwe, and have relatives who are part-Ojibwe I liked it, too!

5. Hey, thank you.

I learned from wiki that the Ojibwe are also called the Chippewa. Also learned they use sweat lodges for teaching. I'm familiar with that from some tribes in the southwest. They're known for crafting birch bark canoes, which explains the historical importance of that photo.

From wikipedia:

The Ojibwe (also Ojibwa), or Chippewa, are a large group of Native Americans and First Nations in North America. There are Ojibwe communities in both Canada and the United States. In Canada, they are the second-largest population among First Nations, surpassed only by the Cree. In the United States, they have the fourth-largest population among Native American tribes, surpassed only by the Navajo, Cherokee, and Lakota.

The majority of the Ojibwe peoples live in Canada. Ojibwe in the U.S. number over 56,440, living in an area stretching across the northern tier from New York west to Montana. They are historically known for their crafting of birch bark canoes, their sacred birch bark scrolls, the use of cowrie shells for trading, the cultivation of wild rice, and the use of copper arrow points.

The Ojibwe have a number of spiritual beliefs passed down by oral tradition under the Midewiwin teachings. These include a creation story and a recounting of the origins of ceremonies and rituals. Spiritual beliefs and rituals were very important to the Ojibwe because spirits guided them through life. Birch bark scrolls and petroforms were used to pass along knowledge and information, as well as for ceremonies. Pictographs were also used for ceremonies.

3. Some older looking students in that Volkswagen bug!

Veterans enjoying their education benefits?

(Smoking may be playing some small part too...)

Both my dad and my wife's dad had a large portion of their university education paid for in return for their military service.

They were smokers too, although both quit many decades ago, deciding they didn't want their children to smoke.

I think this PSA from 1967 was a big deal:
