Indigenous anthropologist and historian, Kade Ferris, has been researching the cultures and history of the Ojibwe, Cree, and Metis people of the upper-Midwest for over 25 years. During this time, Kade has worked with dozens of tribal communities, and has collected numerous archival and oral historic accounts, found hundreds of interesting historical snippets, and is now sharing the fruits of his research with readers.
A collection of twenty-three “Little Histories” related to the Metis and Plains Ojibwe people. These Little histories are vivid, short historical excerpts that are presented in digest form, like the old Harper’s Weekly or Readers Digest, where they can be easily read and easily remembered, like a storybook. Stories include tales about old time bush dances, battles, buffalo hunts, chiefs and leaders, and more. While small, these histories are inspiring and entertaining. They provide vital information on some of the most interesting events, people, and places in a deceptively simple, engaging way that takes you, the reader, back into the past to look at these snippets from time through bite size chapters, making these little histories perfect for casual reading, as bedtime stories, or to educate yourself without the need for in-depth research.

The Falcon: A narrative of the captivity and adventures of John Tanner, during thirty-years residence among the Indians in the interior of North ... with Historical Annotations and Translations
Edited with historical annotations and translations, John Tanner's seminal autobiography tells the story of a man who, over the course of 30 years, became almost fully assimilated into Anishinaabe society and culture - coming to view the world almost completely through an indigenous lens.
The narrative includes fascinating stories of survival, daring hunting, starvation, sickness, and coming home to the white world only to return to the only life he had become accustomed to: that of an Indigenous person.
