The Potawatomi by James A Clifton( Book )

7 editions published between 1974 and 2014 in English and held by 1,154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Potawatomi, traditionally a canoe-traveling people, lived near the waterways of the Great Lakes area. They intersected American history at critical points. they were caught up in the conflicts between the French and English colonial powers, and they fought in the American Revolution and the War of 1812. Their story is one of new ideas and adaptations to change. It shows a proud and democratic people interacting with other Indian groups as well as with French trappers and traders. More recently the Potawatomi, who live today in scattered locations from Oklahoma and Kansas to Ontario, have taken part in protests to assert Indian rights, participated in movements to enhance Indian identity nationwide, and struggled to control their own lives. --

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)
