It is difficult to comprehend a society in which there are basically no laws or law enforcement: a society held together by personal honor and respect for traditions of behavior learned from birth. The Ojibwa living east of Lake Winnipeg lived in unfathomable remoteness and isolation except for the band at Berens River which is right on the lake. Hallowell and William Berens visited isolated interior bands as far as 350 miles up river. The river itself provided the only access; the journey took weeks.
Berens River, Manitoba still exists. You can catch a glimpse of it on Google earth. As I write, it is 16ºF with snow expected. Forget about seeing the weather radar, only a satellite image is available.
Surprised it hasn't yet been made into a major motion picture.
