Eric Hemenway of the Little Traverse Bay Band of Odawa Indians will host a virtual presentation about the forced relocation of natives and its repercussions.

In the 1800s, Indian removal was federal policy that displaced tens of thousands of natives from their ancestral homelands. The most infamous of these removals was the Cherokee trail of tears but Michigan has its own history of removing its native populations.

This talk will look at the history of forced relocation of tribes in Michigan and the repercussions removal policies had on tribes. Please register to receive the Zoom link. The event is free to attend.
