Michigan is located on the western portion of the upper peninsula of Michigan. It is bordered by Ontario and Wisconsin. It has long been a popular tourist destination because of the great lakes, that it has to offer. The most popular lakes are Lake Huron, Lake Michigan, Lake Huron, Lake Erie and Lake Michigan.


The name of Michigan comes from the Ojibwe language mishigami, which means "big water". Ojibway was originally from Ojibway Indians of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The name Ojibway came about because the Ojibways were the first people to come across the Great lakes. Ojibway Indians lived in areas along the shores of Lake Huron and Lake Michigan and in several villages that are now part of Marquette County in Michigan. The Ojibways used to live along the lakes and in small towns. The main source of food was fish and game.

As time passed by, the Ojibway Indians began to become separated from the rest of the population and became isolated from one another. One of their main problems was that the Ojibway could not hunt the fish they needed to survive. Their food sources were not very far away. The Ojibway started to take up agriculture as a way to survive. They built grain mills that were used to mill grain. Their main farming method was to plant the corn and wheat seeds along river bottoms so that the corn and wheat would grow into crops that the Ojibways could harvest. This allowed them to make bread and other foods that they used to make their food and other products.

As the centuries passed, the Michigan native population moved away from the areas that had the food sources for the Ojibways. Because of this, there were a lot of empty acres on the Great lakes that no longer had fish in them. In order to replace the fish that the Ojibways were using, the Ojibway Indians began to farm corn and wheat crops along the water tables.

When the population in Michigan began to increase, the Ojibway were left out in the cold. They would use the waterfowl as a way to survive. The Ojibways hunted the waterfowl for food until the birds would come down to the lake bottoms and eat their corn and wheat crop. They would then take their corn and wheat home with them and make bread to freeze it in winter. This would keep them warm in the winters.

The population in Michigan continued to grow over the years and the lakes became more popular among people who visit the lakes and the surrounding areas. The lakes are also known for being the most beautiful lakes in North America and they have always been known for being a great spot for the tourist business. The lakes are an attraction for many industries and a place that draws people from all over the country and all over the world.
