Good overview resources on Native Americans' traditional way of life in the Great Lakes region (specifically Southeast Michigan)?

I moved to Ann Arbor recently and am mainly interested in life before colonization. Do you know of any good resources on everyday Indian life here (not so much interested in the Wars or period after colonization). Every type of source is OK - fictional, non-fictional, book, movie, article, book chapter...non-academic would be preferred but if it's readable I'm OK with anything.
(Of course if you happen to know anything about traditional Native American culture in this area feel free to add interesting tidbits to this thread. Where did people live, what did they eat, what religion did they have, that kind of thing. I'm absolutely clueless!)
