9781425122737: The Plains of Aamjiwnaang

Aamjiwnaang is the name the Saulteux Band of Ahnishenahbek (Chippewa) gave their hunting territory that encompassed both sides of the St. Clair River and the adjacent lands in the southern part of Lake Huron. The book focuses on four generations of Chippewa chiefs beginning with Young Gull who led a group of Saulteux people south from Lake Superior in the first decade of the eighteenth century. Young Gull's son Little Thunder, grandson Red Sky, and great-grandson On The Plain subsequently played important roles interacting with the French, the British, the Americans and other First Nations allies. Events cascade from one historical episode to another . . . from the establishment of Fort Pontchartrain (Detroit) through the French and Indian War, Pontiac's Rebellion, the American Revolution, the Indian War of 1790-95 and the War of 1812. The book describes such famous characters as Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac, Generals Montcalm and Wolfe, Pontiac, George Washington, Daniel Boone, Mad Anthony Wayne, Sir Isaac Brock and Tecumseh. Participation in such famous battles as Fort William Henry, Fort Necessity, Blue Licks, Fallen Timbers, Frenchtown, Detroit and Moraviantown are vividly described and the consequences on the Chippewa are well researched. The book culminates with the coming of the missionaries, the signing of land surrender treaties and the ensuing paternalistic "reserve era" "The Plains of Aamjiwnaang is an excellent historical account . . . informative with clearly organized chapters . . . the research is superb" Douglas Gordon Learning Coordinator (Retired) Thames Valley District Board of Education London, Ontario, Canada.

About the Author:

David D. Plain is a member of the Aamjiwnaang First Nation and a grandson of Chief On The Plain. He holds both undergraduate and graduate degrees from Tyndale University College and Seminary, Toronto, Canada. Always a lover of history, he has devoted much time and effort to his family's genealogy and how it has affected the history of the Ahnishenahbek of Aamjiwnaang.

Review:

This title is a fascinating glimpse into the other perspective of an often-taught portion of history on the side of a people who had their lands and their culture under siege for centuries and well into the present. The author's first-person perspective adds additional weight to the details present, referring to the decisions and actions of the Aamjiwnaang as "Our people" or "We" throughout the text. Michael Radon, The US Review of Books

"Plain uses a rich variety of sources: maps and treaties between
Aboriginals and Europeans (some of which are reproduced in
appendices), stories maintained in oral histories passed down for
generations, and a variety of professional and amateur historical
publications. And he does this to get the story straight, his key to
reviving the memory of his ancestors."  The Diocesan Times, Halifax, Canada

"Highly recommended a new book by local author David Plain, wittingly called "The Plains of Aamjiwnaang". Well written and superbly researched it clearly explains the history of Aamjiwnaang." Sarnia and Lambton County THIS WEEK
