Known in their own language as the "Neshnabek," the Potawatomi of the Great Lakes region became military and economic allies of the French settlers. During the 1700s, the tribe migrated to parts of what is now southern Michigan, Ohio and Illinois, but the American Revolution and its aftermath caused grave problems for the tribe, with waves of settlers migrating to their lands. Though treaties were negotiated, much of their land was bought up by the United States. By the 1800s, the Potawatomi were placed on reservations across many states, keeping them separated throughout the 20th century. Today, only a few hundred tribe members survive, but some still speak the language and conform to the old ways of their ancestors. 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.
