Andrew J. Blackbird, the author
of this little book, is an educated Indian, son of the Ottawa Chief. His
Indian name is Mack-aw-de-be-nessy (Black Hawk), but he generally goes
by the name of "Blackbird," taken from the interpretation of the French
"L'Oiseau noir." Mr. Blackbird's wife is an educated and intelligent
white woman of English descent, and they have four children. He is a
friend of the white people, as well as of his own people. Brought up as
an Indian, with no opportunity for learning during his boyhood, when he
came to think for himself, he started out blindly for an education,
without any means but his brains and his hands.
