Summary:
Hunters and fishermen, the Menominee were revered for their wisdom, spirituality and strong survival skills. They lived in lodges called "wigwams" along the upper peninsula of what is now Michigan. Their trading expertise brought them much prosperity, eventually making them one of the richest Native American communities of the early 20th century. But when the United States eliminated all reservations in the 1950s, their economy crumbled, though the Menominee tribe still owned much of its native lands. Today, Menominee leaders focus on business opportunities for their people, building self-esteem in the young people and emphasizing the importance of native language and culture. Part of the multivolume Indians of North America Video Collection, each featuring the compelling history and culture of a particular Native American tribe.

Only available in the US.
