1920's Native American Chippewa Tribe Handmade Beaded Moccasins.

What is the difference between Chippewa, Ojibway, Ojibwe, and Ojibwa? What do these words mean?

There is no difference. All these different spellings refer to the same people. In the United States more people use 'Chippewa,' and in Canada, more people use 'Ojibway,' but all four of these spellings are common. They all come from an Algonquian word meaning 'puckered,' probably because of the tribe's puckered moccasin style of shoes. The Ojibway people call themselves Anishinabe in their own language, which means 'original person.'

American Indian beadwork is one of the most beautiful of the North American Indian adornments and deserves a special place in any great Native American art collection where it serves as a reminder of people's past and the people today.
