Re: [ancient_waterways_society] 200 years
- Per the recommended book, Ojibwe Waasa Inaabidaa, the "Traditional homelands of the Ojibwe were not populated soley by one nation. Both the eastward (as attested in the Wallum Olum of our Lenape ancestors) and westward migrations of the Ojibwe show fluid rather than permanent nation boundaries.What we know as Ojibwe country today resulted from the recent westward expansion."

"These interviews, along with 3,000 archival photographs, interviews with academic historians, original and historic artwork, and dramatic re-enactments, illustrate the Ojibwe people, culture and language through the past two centuries."...
I am sorry, but that does not impress me.
Desoto came and marched through the SE from FL to TX spreading Small Pox all the way.
That was in the 1400's
The Pilgrims and French did not come until the 1600's
That 200 years gave plenty of time for the disease to wipe out whole cultures.
Your Ojibwe were at the most, moving into emptied territory,
They were far from being the first.
