Available in paperback only.  Sally Gaikesheyongai (Ojibwe), The Seven Fires: An Ojibway Prophecy. 1994, color illustrations by Polly Keeshig-Tobias.

In a touching and straightforward way, Gaikesheyongai tell of each of the seven fires, how she interprets each prophecy, and how each relates to Ojibwe life (and the life of all of us) today. Young readers will feel Gaikesheyongai’s presence as she shares a heartfelt, inspiring and philosophical discussion. As she explains the prophecies in simple, personal language that young people can easily identify with, they will come away with a lot to think about. The discussion of each fire is accompanied by a full-page watercolor-and-ink drawing, awesome in its simplicity and honesty. Both discussions and pictures will have children thinking very deeply about what was, what could have been, what has changed—and what is yet possible. This is a treasure of a book.
