Anishinaabe is the antonym for a group of culturally related indegenious peoples that are residents in what are now Canada and the United States. These also include the Odawa, Saulteaux, Ojibwe, Potawatomi,Oji-Cree and Algonquin people. The Anishinaabe speak Anishinaabemowin, or Anishinaabe languages that belong to the Algonquin Language family. They historically lived in theNortheast Woodlands and Subarctic.
The word Anishinaabeg translates to "people from whence lowered". Another definition refers to "the good humans", meaning those who are on the right road or path given to them by the Creator Gitche Manitou, or Great Spirit. Basil Johnston, an Ojibwe historian, linguist, and author, wrote that the term's literal translation is "Beings Made Out of Nothing" or "Spontaneous Beings". Anishinaabe claim the people were created by divine breath
Anishinaabe is often mistakenly considered a synonym of Ojibwe; however, it refers to a much larger group of tribes.
The graceful bird of the skies, the eagle, is the prayer carrier and messenger of the Anishinabe people. As the eagle soars across the skies, one knows he is carrying the prayers to the Creator.The eagle has great significance for the Anishinabe and all native american people when it comes to healing ceremonies and ceremonies honouring and respecting other people. Although people of different cultures may have different beliefs, respecting others’ beliefs is part of the growing process in the Anishinabe way of life.
As a person begins to grow more spiritual, he learns to respect and honour the graceful eagle of the skies. An individual might see himself as the eagle when he prays for the people who are in need of prayer to get them through the rough spots on the road of life.
In the healing ceremonies performed by the medicine man or woman, the eagle carries the sickness out of the body and up to the Creator for healing. The sick person must believe in the power of the prayer carrier for the flight to be successful.
