(p.15) Chapter One Green Setting Feather’s World
Claiming Turtle Mountain's Constitution

Keith Richotte Jr.

University of North Carolina Press

Chapter one describes the parent groups of the Turtle Mountain Band – the Plains Ojibwe and the Métis – and the often cooperative, sometimes contentious nature of their relationship. Beginning in the early nineteenth century through mid-century, the chapter demonstrates the evolution of the Plains Ojibwe and Métis, their leadership and governance structures, and their overlap. While both groups had much in common and were often cooperative, there was tension and conflict as well. Both the Plains Ojibwe and Métis made claims to the land that would eventually come under dispute with the federal government.
