Notes

The Ojibwe have (had) institutionalized the connection dream experience in the selection of "Dreamers," or girls with a special ability to connect in dreams and draw insight. [1]

One morning in the summer of Oona's seventh year there was a piece of charcoal by her morning meal. She knew the time had come when she must take serious thought of life. She must either pick up the charcoal and go into the forest to learn whether she had a special gift, or she could ignore the charcoal and eat her morning meal. This was the custom of the people, to learn which girls would be Dreamers or Medicine People."[2]
