A word of admonition from the wisdom lore of the Menomini tribe says, “Look often at the moon and the stars.”
According to the Menomini, there is, or was, a Being who 'made the earth.'
Among the Menomini Indians, for instance, a woman of good circumstances would own as many as 1200 to 1500 birch-bark vessels.
All the people of a totem name in the Menomini tribe are akin to persons of the same totem in other tribes, say of the Sioux.
But when the Menomini Indians reached the spot where the dogs barked, they found only skunks.
Therefore the Menomini have always called their thievish neighbors Winnebago.
Among the Menomini Indians, for instance, a woman of good circumstances would own as many as from 1200 to 1500 birch-bark vessels.
also Menomini, Algonquian people of Wisconsin, from Ojibwa (Algonquian) Manoominii, literally "wild rice people," from manoomin "wild rice." Not their name for themselves.
