Ojibwe Birch Bark Wigwam
DVD

   Ojibwe Birch Bark Wigwam, produced and directed by NMU sociology professor Michael Loukinen, is meant to show the importance of the wigwam in Ojibwe culture, as well as the extensive amount of work it takes to make one from the ground up.
   “This (film) shows the ancient survival knowledge of the Ojibwe,” Loukinen said. “They lived for thousands of years in homes like this in the U.P. You can walk outside right now and come back and tell me how you’d like to live in a wigwam.

OJIBWE DRUM SONGS
DVD

   Michael Loukinen, professor of sociology at Northern Michigan recently premiered his latest documentary film, "Ojibwe Drum Songs", which offers a revealing glimpse into the life of an Ojibwe elder, his stories and the songs that come to life around the drum. Dr. Loukinen produced the film with Grant Guston of Lake Effect Media.
    Loukinen was invited by the Lac Vieux Desert Band of Lake Superior Ojibwe in 1996 to produce documentaries and a digital archive of their traditions. Ojibwe Drum Songs is the fourth film in the series. It blends story, song and dance.
    “The drum is the oldest-known instrument and an essential aspect of Ojibwe life,” Loukinen said. “It’s believed a spirit resides in the drum and that it must be treated with reverence and respect."

Finnish American Lives
DVD

   Michael Loukinen has captured an important part of Upper Peninsula history in his film "Finnish American Lives". The 45-minute documentary attracted a big audience for its first public showing on WLUC-TV. The film showed three generations at work and at play on a farm near Ironwood. The oldest member of the family is a 92-year-old Finnish immigrant whose roots in many respects have determined the lives of the subsequent generations.
  The old-timers life parallels the 20th century history of the U.P. He was born and raised in Finland, then worked in logging camps in the central U.P., in Quincy Mining Co. Copper mines in Hancock, and on the farm in the western Upper Peninsula. Logging, mining and the family farm: the backbone of the peninsula.

Way Back When: Nostalgic Essays of 
"Growing Up North" 
By Jerry Harju
Want to go back in time? Humorist Jerry Harju tells how it was when kids could bring knives to school but not marbles. And what was on the menu when his father was the first stay-at-home dad. Jerry will jog fond memories of 1940's radio commercials and christmas goodies, the Great Depression Syndrome of saving string and tinfoil, when the phrase "trick or treat" had teeth in it, and, yes, even some jail time. "Way Back When" is a collection of selected essays published in the Mining Journal, Upper Michigan's largest newspaper. Jerry Harju, Author
