Dennis White‘s parents were born in the 1900s on the Lac Courte Oreilles Reservation. After World War II, they moved with their seven children to Wayekwaa-gichigami, the end of the Great Water. White was raised on his reservation in Wisconsin till he pursued his degree in Mathematics at the University of Wisconsin Superior.

White is dedicated to his culture’s preservation by learning Ojibwe language and the nearly lost Ojibwe art of finger weaving. In 2009, he ventured to the Smithsonian’ s National Museum of the American Indian as one of three Indigenous Artists. From this experience he furthered his design research of finger woven sashes.

 Over the last twenty years, he has been an adjunct instructor at our Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwe Community College, teaching calculus and Ojibwe Language. Recently he has started to teach finger weaving within his community. He strives to preserve and deepen this art form to encourage future generations, with the preservation of this wonderful portion of Ojibwe culture.
