The Revenge of the Ojibwe


Every Christmas, a friend sends me a package of foodstuffs from the Native Harvest website, run by the Ojibwe tribe. It's all wonderful goodies, and today I broke out the Maple Butter for toast.

That's when I noticed the native name given for the product: "Anishinaabe Doodooshaaboo-bimide."

Yeah, right. You just know this is a joke the Native Americans are playing on us politically correct and guilty invaders, trying to get us to pronounce a bunch of doo-wop lyrics and sound like Frankie Valli.

But it does taste great!

If Maple Butter fits on pancakes I'll have to look into it this winter.

Ok, Anishinaabe is literally 'native person' and Doodooshaaboo-bimide is 'butter'. My guess is they mean "Butter made by Native Persons" and not butter made from natives 😉
