ABOUT THE BOOK:- In 1887, Blackbird (author) published this book. The work was published in Michigan. The book was among the first authoritative accounts of the Ottawa and Chippewa peoples ever published. The book covers not only historical facts but day-to-day details of how the Ottawa and Chippewa hunted, fished and trapped before the coming of whites. Blackbird explains many of the traditional beliefs and cultural practices of the two tribes. Because the author was himself a native American, the book is free of the bias commonly found in books by white authors of the period. Finally, the book includes a basic grammar of the Ottawa and Chippewa languages.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:- Andrew J. Blackbird (1815-1908) was an Ottawa Chief's son who served as an official interpreter for the US Government and later as a postmaster while remaining active in native American affairs as a teacher, advisor on diplomatic issues, lecturer and temperance advocate. In this work he describes how he became knowledgeable about both native American and white cultural traditional and chronicles his struggles to achieve two years of higher education. He also deals with the history of many native peoples throughout the Michigan region, combining, information on political, military and diplomatic matters. Blackbird was loyal to the United States during various Uprisings. In 1858 he married Elizabeth Margarel Fish, a white woman of English descent. As a result, he was viewed favourably by the United States.
