Summary, etc.:
The documentary is an in-depth portrayal of the second-largest tribe in North America, the Anishinaabe/Ojibwe (Chippewa) nation of the upper Great Lakes Region. [Disc 1]: Ojibwe Oral Tradition explains the importance of the Anishinaabe/Ojibwe language, its near disappearance and its renewal today. [Disc 2]: We Are All Related teaches about the Anishinaabe/Ojibwe relationship with the land, a relationship based on respect, sharing, humility and responsibility. [Disc 3]: We Gain Knowledge explores the connection between the traditional Anishinaabe/Ojibwe family structure and how individuals acquire knowledge thorough the four phases of life. [Disc 4]: A Healthy Way of Life explores the Anishinaabe/Ojibwe belief that a healthy way of life requires maintaining a balance between mental, physical, spiritual and emotional aspects of a person. [Disc 5]: Making Decisions the Right Way portrays the Anishinaabe/Ojibwe decision-making process, emphasizing the roles of the individual in relationship to the family, the community, the clan and the Creator. [Disc 6]: That Which is Given to Us explores the traditional Anishinaabe/Ojibwe subsistence lifestyle based on the seasonal cycle and the belief that the individual is dependent on the group, the group is dependent on nature and nature is dependent upon the supernatural.
