activities and student activities
Read Brother Eagle, Sister Sky
Start by reviewing what we talked about yesterday. Ask the students what they can
tell you about the Three Fires.

Ask students if they have ever been to a museum that had an exhibit on Native
Americans, or if they have ever been somewhere where they saw Native American
Tell students that there are a few places all over Grand Rapids that show us the
evidence the Native Americans have lived here before!
Tell students to flip to the A Lasting Effect page in their packet.
Show a PowerPoint to the students as they follow along by taking notes. For each
one, talk to students about the place and tell them an interesting fact to write down.
1. Ah-Nab-Awen Park ask if any students have been here before. See if they
recognize the pictures. Read the section on it and explain that this is a really
poplar place to go. Interesting fact: means resting place and has 3 hills that
signify the Three Fires
2. Chief Noonday Statue He was a Potawatomi chief part of the Three Fires,
ask students if they have seen this statue before. Interesting fact: helped
guide Ottawa tribes to safety, statue is made of bronze
3. Anishinabek: The Orignial People Read the section and tell students that the
exhibit tells stories from members of the Three Fires. The information is true
and actually happened. You can learn what it was like to be a Michigan Native
American. Interesting fact: the Native American mannequins are dressed in
traditional clothing and have things like clay pots and other art.
4. The Three Fires Traditional Powwow in June tell students that we are going
to watch a video of a powwow that the Native people from the tribes of the
Three Fires get together and have every summer. A powwow is like a big
celebration or party with lots of food, dancing and games. Tell students that
the video they see will be different from anything they have seen before. We
need to be respectful and understand that this is an important part of their
culture. Show students the two videos. Ask them to write down something
interesting they saw.
