Tribal Protocol and Asking for Help
There are multiple ways to receive a Chippewa name. General practice requires the family to decide if their children receive a Chippewa name and if it is part of their family culture. It is the family who selects the Tribal member to perform the naming ceremony.
Custodians and foster parents are encouraged to make contact with the extended family members to seek assistance if the naming of a child is desired. The extended family would be able to provide the necessary insights on the ceremony and the protocols necessary to follow in the selection of the person performing the ceremony.
