Michigan Native Americans History, 1887

Brief history of the Ottawa and Chippewa Indians of Michigan

Description

The son of an Ottawa chief, Andrew Blackbird served as an official interpreter for the U.S. government in the 1860s and 1870s. This database is a reprint of his history of the Ottawa and Chippewa Indian tribes in Michigan originally published in 1887. It chronicles his life in both Native American and white cultural traditions, as well as a brief history of the native peoples throughout the Michigan region. It also contains descriptions of the beliefs and traditions of these many tribes, along with hunting, fishing and trapping practices. For researchers attempting to understand the culture of early Native Americans in the Great Lakes region, this can be a revealing narrative.
