The Indians whose presence shaped the history of West Central Michigan typically are marginally represented in books and articles about the past. €€œFootprints€€ attempts to correct that omission by telling the stories of individual Native Americans who once walked the Grand River Valley, Lake Michigan€€™s wooded dunes and the land between. Included are the chiefs, their tribal members, those who claimed both Native American and European descent, and a few of the whites who played critical roles, for better or worse, as they interacted with Indians in the early years of settlement. The story begins when the French dominated the area, and continues through the decades of British and American governance in the 18th and 19th centuries and into the 20th. Much of today€€™s knowledge about Indians during the early periods is based on legend and memory, but by the early- to mid-19th century, their lives are revealed in more detail through newspaper and magazine articles, books, censuses and vital statistics. These sources enable us to follow the footprints of those who long ago made their homes here.
