Abstract
"One of the largest and most remarkable Indian tribes of the Canadian and American Prairie region is the one we call the Bungi or Plains-Ojibwa. Moving out of the Woodland regions of Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Ontario in the late 18th century, the ancestors of this tribe battled Plains Indian groups already established on the "tall grass prairie" and carved a territory for themselves and their descendents. The Prairie region was, at first, a strange and unfamiliar environment to these Woodland people. Yet within the space of a century, 1790-1890, the migrants had become Plains Indians. They had successfully reoriented their culture from one suited to a lake and forest habitat to one neatly adjusted to life on the Plains. It is the story of this remarkable cultural metamorphosis which we hope to chronicle in this book."--page 3.
