What government did Chippewa Indians have?

The short answer to this question is: They had a Socialist Republic.

The long answer is: In 1532 a man named Francisco de Victoria wrote a book about this subject; international law as it applied to Native Americans. As part of this book he attempted to downplay the governments used by Native Americans by claiming they were not a recognized form of government, but a government all the same so they had to be dealt with in whatever form they were.

These governments worked on a set system of rights and laws that applied to every member of the tribe including its leaders. This form of base government is called a Republic.

These governments also recognized the difference between personal property and public property (resources). Public property for example is: Food, Water, Shelter, etc. Each member of the tribe contributed as they could to ensure the survival of the whole tribe, not just select members. It was a basic part of this culture that the strong provided for the weak, this is socialism.

How many kmh does an arrow go when shot with a 25 pound bow?

There is no way to tell the velocity of an arrow based solely on the draw weight. There are many other factors that come into play such as the type of arrow, point, fletching, nocks, inserts, release, the bow's efficiency, and even temperature. However, a recurve will probably spit out an arrow at roughly 100-175 kph. Draw weight does play a part but the factors mentioned above are more important.

What can you hunt with a bow and arrow in the UK?

Nothing, it is illegal to hunt with a bow in the UK

It is Illegal for good reasons. An arrow is a poor substitutive for a modern high powered bullet. Which is why the armed forces are so successful when faced with an enemy using bows and arrows. Both America and Britain have prospered greatly form this practice.

An arrow is unlikely to hit the exact target as frequently as a scoped rifle so for that reason the chances of merely harming rather than quickly dispatching the creature are increased. Also the arrow will force the animals hairs into the wound resulting in infection and a very slow and painful death.

Living creatures should be respected and treated with care , even when hunting them. A good hunter has respect for his kill, its not just a moving target to satisfy your ego.

What kind of clothing did the ojibwa tribe women wear?

Ojibwa, Ojibwe, Chippewa or Anishinaabe women anciently wore only a wrap-around buckskin skirt with a robe added in cool weather. By the time of European contact they wore strap-and-sleeve dresses; these had shoulder straps, were mid-calf in length and featured detachable sleeves tied on with leather thongs and fastened at the wrist - with no underarm seam. These dresses were decorated with red, black and yellow paint, bird claws, porcupine quills and little nuggets of native copper. Leggings were knee-length and sometimes an underskirt of woven nettle fibres was worn.

Women usually parted their hair in the centre and pulled it back to form a single rear braid, or there were two front braids wrapped in eel skin, or the hair was worn loose. Red and yellow paint were used to colour the parting.

When trade cloth became available, dresses were made of that material but in the traditional style. During the 1800s and probably due to the influence of other tribes, Ojibwa women began to wear full-length dresses made of two complete deer hides (see the link below for an example of this later style).

Headbands were never a feature of historic Ojibwa women's costume until very recent times.

How do you join a Native American tribe?

Native American tribes are just that Native American - you are born with Native heritage. You just can't "join" a tribe as it is an ancestry.

AnswerA Native American Tribe is a legally defined group. The Bureau of Indian Affairs, under the Department of the Interior keeps track of all American Indian tribes. To join a tribe, you must meet federal and, in some cases, tribal criteria. This includes proof of tribal descent, so you will have to do some ancestry searching.

What were paddles of the ojibwa made of?

Traditional woods for paddles (the Ojibwe word is abwi, plural abwiin) were ash or maple. Bird's eye maple makes a very attractive finished product. Interestingly, a woman's paddle was of a specific style, 4 feet 10 inches long with a blade 22 inches long and 4.25 inches wide; men's paddles were of a slightly different shape, longer and heavier.
