a dramatic photograph of a Crow War Party. It was made in 1908 in Montana by Edward S. Curtis. The photo illustrates Eight Crow Indians on horseback, silhouetted on the top of a hill. The man that is second from the left is pointing off into the distance.
A photograph of a Potawatomi man. My Native American blood is of the Potawatomi. The Potawatomi were part of a long-term alliance, called the Council of Three Fires, with the Ojibwe (Chippewa) and Odaawaa/Odawa (Ottawa). In the Council of Three Fires, the Potawatomi were considered the "youngest brother." The Potawatomi made their home near the Great Lakes Region.
