      Upper Great Lakes. Usually spelled Ojibwa (which may be why you had
      trouble turning info up on the Web) and now usually known as the Chippewa.

      "Chippewa" is the form most commonly used in the US, while "Ojibway" is the
      form most commonly used in Canada. Both are approximations of the native form
      _Ojibwe_. Today it's become fashionable to use the term _Anishinaabe_
      (literally "normal person"), which can be applied to a number of Algonkian-speaking
      peoples of the Great Lakes area.
