Book Review of People of the Three Fires The book People of the Three Fires is written by three different people each describing a tribe in detailThe book is very well written and relatively easy to understand It is informative and was written to be used as a teaching tool for schools The book discusses the relationship between the groups that lived in Michigan and surrounding areas James M McClurken writes the first section which deals with the Ottawa people McClurken tells about the Ottawa peoples relationship with the environment they lived in and how they adapted to change when contacted by Europeans One thing I found interesting about the Ottawa is their beliefs The Ottawa believed in respect for the individual Their leaders represented the people much like our elected officials represent us when a decision is needed for the whole of the country They are in tune with nature and consider the earth and animals part of their family addressing them with father mother brother sister The Ottawas also amazed me at their ability to believe in the supernatural the spirits that told what sickness a person has and the healing power of the firewalkers is a leap of faith I am always amazed that people survived without Advil and Tums and they didnt just survived they thrived The Ottawa were great traders in fact they traded all over northern Michigan A surprising fact I read in the section was of the fleecing of the Indians out of their lands by the Mason County government In the past year however the Little River Band of Ottawa Indians have reclaimed land in Mason County This worries me somewhat because I think the house in which we live was part of the land given to the Ottawa in the Treaty of 1855 While I feel bad that the Ottawa were cheated out of their land I dont think I should have to give up
