This program is free of charge but pre-registration is required.

This live webinar explores many contributions Michigan's Anishinaabe people have made to our state, including cultural preservation, food sovereignty, historical interpretation, environmental stewardship and language revitalization. The discussion will be presented by our featured speakers:

  • Shannon Martin, Director, Ziibiwing Center of Anishinabe Culture & Lifeways
  • Colleen Medicine, Director, Language & Culture, Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians
  • Eric Hemenway, Director, Department of Repatriation, Archives and Records, Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians

A question-and-answer session follows the panel discussion.

All registered participants will receive a list of documentaries and short videos that the speakers encourage watching before the live event. We will also post links on the Michigan History Center Facebook Page.

This program is made possible, in part, by a grant from Michigan Humanities.
