Sister Bernard on fishing

Sister Bernard was at the College of St. Scholasica for a number of years in the 1930s before transferring to Duluth Cathedral High School.
"Indians Live on Fish"--In summer the Ojibway lives on fish, fish and more fish," Sister Bernard explained. "They are extremely fond of bread--which the women of the tribes never bake. The children often receive bread when they come into the villages and cities surrounding the reservations."
