The Anishinaabe have three great books that i have read so far...

When Beaver was Very Great, by Anne Dunn

Living Our Language, edited by Anton Truer

The Manitous, edited by Basil Johnson

The first was short stories from legend and Anne Dunns life, really good short stories and easy reading.

the second is a compilation of stories and legends from different elders all across Anishinaabe country. Some are things these people actually experienced, and some are stories passed down from family.

The last is a collection of legends about the spirits of the Anishinaabe.

All of these seem like they are very important to our culture, and at least tehy are written down so in the future they can be shared and revived, so they wont be lost. I wish there were more out there.
