Wayne State University Department of History says
Historian Michael A. McDonnell will discuss his new book, Masters of Empire. In it, he reveals the pivotal role played by the native peoples of the Great Lakes in the history of North America. Though less well known than the Iroquois or Sioux, the Anishinaabeg who lived along the shores of Lakes Michigan and Huron were equally influential. McDonnell charts the story of the Odawa who settled at the straits between those two lakes, a key center for trade and diplomacy throughout the vast country west of Montreal known as the pays d'en haut.
