The Ojibwe Cabin

Updated: Feb 26

In further recognition of the National Native American Heritage Month this November 2021 we feature the Ojibwa log cabin design. In sequence with our previously posted Navajo plan, we consider it a special honor to reflect on the Ojibwe Native Americans and their honorable rich cultural ways, and their history that has so greatly contributed to all that once was America.

One of our Ojibwe Native American web site followers pointed out that our company name of White Eagle is spoken in Ojibwe as "Bibigwe Migizi", adding "that to earn an eagle feather is a high honor". We thank you for that! Your valued information is also received as a high honor.

On a personal note I wish to add that I have a sister who was a strong supporter of the American Indian Movement (AIM), which was founded in 1968 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Founders include Clyde Bellecourt, Dennis Banks, George Mitchell, and Eddie Benton-Banai. Clyde's Ojibwe name is Nee-gon-we-way-we-dun, which means "Thunder Before the Storm." His strong presence and life long commitment to standing up for human rights fits his name well. I met Mr. Bellecourt and attended AIM meetings at the AIM center in Minneapolis.

It was there that I also met Phillip Deere. Phillip was a founder of the Traditional Youths and Elders Circle and a spiritual guide for the American Indian Movement (AIM). He was an elder and statesman for the International Indian Treaty Council (IITC), and participated in the United Nations International Human Rights Commission, held in Geneva, Switzerland. I count it a privilege that I was able to welcome Phillip into my home to dine and enjoy fellowship in the Great Spirit, talking on the greatest things in life. May God be with him, 'til we meet again.

“The Longest Walk is not over. We all have our Longest Walk. We all have our history of relocation and forced removals.” – Phillip Deere
