Life in Native America 400 Years Ago

November 15, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Award winning author Robert Downes will examine the lives of the Ojibwe and Ottawa tribes of the Upper Great Lakes region from 400 years ago. Fiction mixes with history in Downes’ book, Windigo Moon, a finalist for the Forward Book of the Year Award. In the novel, a young woman is abducted in a raid by an enemy tribe, during which her village is destroyed. She is rescued by an Ojibwe youth, but his village is devastated by disease and they must band together to survive. History, legends, and beliefs of the Native Americans of the Upper Great Lakes will be explored. A book signing will follow the presentation.
