Abstract:

Overview: Offering insight into the arts of Great Lakes Native nations, this collection of stories, songs, poetry, speeches, autobiographies, and fiction, spans the centuries from deep past to the present. Elders, war chiefs, religious leaders, and contemporary artists share stories of the creation, stars, animals, heroes, and monsters, along with narratives of hunting, fishing, food-gathering, and war. Set in the natural environment of the seasonal year, the selections explain cultural concepts and show how modern Native literature reflects tradition.
