"If you take the Christian Bible and put it out in the wind and the rain, soon the paper on which the words are printed will disintegrate and the words will be gone. Our bible IS the wind." Statement by an anonymous Native woman.
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.
