People of the three fires : the Ottawa, Potawatomi and Ojibway of Michigan by James A Clifton( Book )

5 editions published between 1986 and 1988 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book accompanied by a student workbook and teacher's guide, was written to help secondary school students to explore the history, culture, and dynamics of Michigan's indigenous peoples, the American Indians. Three chapters on the Ottawa, Potawatomi, and Ojibway (or Chippewa) peoples follow an introduction on the prehistoric roots of Michigan Indians. Each chapter reflects the integration of cultural and historical information about the Indians. The chapter on the Potawatomi stresses the political activities and economic forces affecting the tribe in southwestern Michigan. It includes biographical information on 19th century Potawatomi leaders. The second chapter focuses on the subsistence patterns and indigenous environmental relations of the Ojibway, while touching on the spiritual connotations of their existence. It is a generic treatment of Ojibway life, customs, beliefs, and the subsequent federal policies affecting them. The chapter on the Ottawa provides an extended discussion of their contact with European powers and explores the Indians' responses and adaptations to changing environmental and sociopolitical circumstances. This book contains many historical photographs and a five-page bibliography. (Tes)

The Klamath are Native Americans living in southwestern Oregon. This file consists of 11 documents. The focus of the literature is on tribal origins, traditional culture, social change, and mythology. The earliest by Gatschet is based on field work carried out in 1877 and includes information on geography, settlements, folklore, language, and mythology. Spier produced a "memory ethnography" based on informant recollections of ca. 1860 tribal life. He also compared Klamath cultural traits with those of neighboring groups in order to establish Klamath origins and affiliations. Stern wrote about the history, culture, and politics of the Klamath reservation and a study of Klamath myths and their narration. Barker also recorded Klamath mythology and life histories. Other articles in the file include studies of Klamath childhood and socialization (Pearsall), material culture (Barrett), personality and acculturation (Clifton and Levine), comparative religion (Spencer), and songs and their interpretation (Weaver)
