Thomas Shalifoe of Baraga,MI, was an Ojibwe Indian. He was highly engaged in his way of life as my grandma tells. She spent a lot o f time with her Grandpa Tom. He was a very well known Ojibwe person who was known for speaking his language, singing Ojibwe songs and playing his fiddle. Grandma says that her Grandpa a was a very quiet man and very poised and was a great story teller.
