Legends of Michigami: Prairie Chants

"Legends of Michigami: Prairie Chants" is "part of a collection of Hypermedia, narrative videos that chronicle aspects of life on the shores of Lake Michigan [called Michigami by some first nations]. In this video, a story of the prairie – and the native tribes who once lived there – unfolds. The past, the present, the future . . . The tribal narrative happens to follow the historic movement of the Sauk or Sac tribe (officially Sauk and Fox), but it could be that of any one of many eastern woodland people, indeed hundreds of tribes across the country, who were forced from their homes, had their land taken by trickery or force, and walked their own trail of tears into captivity. The narrative links to the present with the development of new prairie associated with solar gardens." -- Marjorie Luesebrink
