Lessons from the Ojibwe, 400 Years Ago by Robert Downes

Event Dates and Times

10/4/2017 - Starts: 7:00 PM - Ends: 9:00 PM
Peter White Public Library, Community Room, Marquette, MI
Join author and world traveler Robert Downes as he celebrates the release of his new novel Windigo Moon: A Novel of Native America on Wednesday, October 4, at 7:00 pm in the Peter White Public Library’s Community Room.

Downes’ visit to the Peter White Public Library is part of a four-state tour promoting his book, which is published by Blank Slate Press/Amphorae Publishing. The novel is set 400 years ago among the Ojibwe Indians of the Upper Great Lakes. It's a love story that begins in 1588, encompassing 31 years in the life of an Ojibwe couple.

To promote his book, Downes will give a digital-video presentation based on the extensive historical research which went into Windigo Moon. The presentation, “Lessons from the Ojibwe, 400 Years Ago,” includes
- What we could learn from the example of the Ojibwe to better our own society,
- The devastating “Lost Century” of the 1500s and what it meant to Native peoples,
- The roles of Native men, women, the family and the clan,
- Life through the seasons: Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter,
- The importance of storytelling: myths, monsters and supernatural beings,
- And, the migration of the Ojibwe and its impact on other tribes.

Following the presentation there will be a lively question and answer session with time for book sales and signing. There is no admission charge to attend. For more information, visit or call 226-4318.
