Chippeways (Ojibways), a large Algonquin nation of Upper Canada and Michigan, forming, with the Crees, Montagnais of Labrador, and a few others, Schoolcraft's Nipercinean (fourth) branch of the Algonquin family. The Chippeways, who still number about 12,000, have all abandoned the chase, and have in other respects largely conformed to civilised ways. They are chiefly occupied with agriculture, and support a number of schools, where both Chippeway and English are taught.
