A Study of Three Chippewa Families at Warroad, Minnesota and Their Historical and Cultural Contributions.
Landin, Grace
The study presents some aspects of American Indian history and culture of the Warroad, Minnesota region, examining three well-known Chippewa families--Ka-Kay-Geesick, Lightning, and Thunder. These families were selected because of their significance in the area--Ka-Kay-Geesick was a well-known medicine man; the Lightning name is associated with craftwork; the Thunder family has had a succession of five chiefs, including the present chief. The material was gathered over a 2-year period, principally by personal interviews with family members. The study includes a literature review, the stories of these three families, including the Warroad Indian today, family photographs, and economic trends. A discussion of the arts, crafts, and industry of the Chippewas includes picture stories, folklore, and a Wendigo folktale. The appendixes give Treaty No. 3, a historical review of the Red Lake Indians, the Indian census role, Margaret Lightning's personal story, excerpts of 1904 promotional materials, and a discussion of the Buffalo Point Project and the Council for Quality Education.
