Long Description:
HMCS Ojibwa is named after one of Canada's largest groups of indigenous peoples. At the height of their power, their territory stretched from the shores of Lake Huron to the edge of the Prairies. Today, there are reserves in the Canadian provinces of Ontario and Manitoba and the American states of Minnesota and Wisconsin. Also known as the Chippawa, the name refers to 'people whose moccasins have puckered seams'. Those moccasins helped them to be silent hunters and warriors. HMCS Ojibwa is proud to bear the name; however, be assured that there are no puckered seams aboard this sleek lined beauty.
