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. --!

The Lenapes by Robert Steven Grumet( Book )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 783 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Lenapes, traditionally lived along the Middle Atlantic coast in what are now New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Delaware. There they tended crops, fished, hunted, and traded with neighboring tribes. The Lenapes were among the first Indians to encounter the English, French, and Dutch when European powers began to establish settlements in eastern North America in the 1600s. This contact exposed the Lenapes to European diseases, which bu the 1670s reduced the tribe's population by 90 percent or more. The survivors struggled to hold their ground, using European law to delay for as long as possible the transfer of property to land-hungry homesteaders. By the late 1700s, however, they were pushed westward by white colonists who were eager to take over Lenape territory. The tribe relocated first to Ohio, then to Indiana and present-day Kansas in the early 1800s, and finally to Indian Territory (now Oklahoma) after the Civil War. Today, descendants of the Lenapes--now known as Delawares and Munsees--are scattered throughout many states and Canada. Although separated by vast distances and divided by international borders, they continue to recognize their common identity and their shared history of struggle and survival." -- Publisher's description
