The moose, “mooz”, in anishinaabemowin, is the largest member of the deer family averaging, but sometimes exceeding, 1000 pounds.
Moose have been and still are very important to First Nations in Northern Ontario. They are not only an important food species in the diet of many indigineous peoples but in Ojibewe culture the moose is a symbol of endurance and survival. A successful moose hunt is time for celebration and sharing.
The Ojibwe tradition and belief with hunting is that animals give themselves to the hunter and that those animals are providing food for them and their family to live. In turn these animals are respected with a tobacco offering (asema) at the site of the kill.
A female moose or cow is sexually mature around two years old and gives birth in the spring after a gestation of about 230 days. Moose usually give birth to one calf at a time but sometimes twins and triplets are born.
