August GKO Workshop: The Odawa Influence

  • The Odawa Influence: The Odawa Participation in American & Local History
  • August 25, Sunday
  • 10 am to noon
  • Harbor Springs Public Beach (across from Holy Childhood Church)
  • Presented by Eric Hemenway, Little Traverse Bay Band of Odawa
  • As the nation celebrates the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812 & the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, many times the Native American contribution to these historic events are overlooked.  The Odawa of Emmet County sent its warriors off to both of these wars and helped shape American history.  Come and learn about these important events and more during a historic lecture with Eric Hemenway, Director of Repatriation, Archives and Records for the Little Traverse Bay Band of Odawa Indians.
  • Light snacks provided, bring a lunch and stay.
