People of the Three Fires: The Ottawa, Potawatomi and Ojibway of Michigan
By George Cornell, James Clifton and James McClurken
The text of this book has been intentionally constructed and written in a manner, which allows it to be used in Michigan's secondary schools. This is not a book which has been prepared for scholarly colleagues; rather it is a book for young readers who are just beginning to explore the history, culture, and dynamics of Michigan's indigenous peoples, the American Indians.

AUBE NA BING: A Pictorial History of Michigan Indians
Compiled by M.T. Bussey, with Legends by Simon Otto
The photographs included in this book span the time from 1865 to 1988. In bridging these years, we intend to reveal the cultural changes endured by the Michigan tribes. The adjustment made by the Ojibwe, Potawatomi, and Ottawa of Michigan was a heroic one. As our tribal lands were being taken by treaties, allowing limited room for hunting and food gathering, the Michigan tribes were faced with relocation, escape to Canada or acceptance of European farming methods and Christian teachings. Some were relocated on reservation lands in Kansas, while many chose to flee to Canada where they could continue to live in a traditional way. It is the group that chose to struggle and survive in Michigan that are poignantly revealed in this documentary.
Research and Writing Tribal Histories
By Duane Kendall Hale
The need for writing tribal histories is great, for among many tribes tribal history, language and culture are rapidly disappearing. In some Oklahoma tribes, no one under 50 years of age can speak the tribal language fluently. In urban Minneapolis, only one in ten Indians can speak their language. As the tribal elders die, it appears that much of the tribal past will also disappear.
A comprehensive guide to the interesting process of recording the histories of tribal nations, it is written by a foremost scholar in the field.

Walk In Peace: Legends and Stories of the Michigan Indians
By Simon Otto, with Illustrations by Kayle Crampton
These legends and stories have come from my own memories. They were originally told by Indian elders, my grandfather, father, mother, medicine men, a medicine woman and various others with whom I came in contact in my early life and in later years. The closeness of the earth in the sense of being part of Mother Earth has prompted me to share my thoughts with one and all.
