A photograph of a Potawatomi man. My Native American blood is of the Potawatomi. The Potawatomi were part of a long-term alliance, called the Council of Three Fires, with the Ojibwe (Chippewa) and Odaawaa/Odawa (Ottawa). In the Council of Three Fires, the Potawatomi were considered the "youngest brother." The Potawatomi made their home near the Great Lakes Region.
