17oct7:00 pm8:00 pmNative Treaties Shared Rights

Event Details

Many promises were made to Native Americans as the immigrants made their way into the New Land to be known as America.  Written promises made by the government were known as treaties, creating legal binding agreements which, for the most part, transferred land ownership to the United States with an area for the Native Americans to live on.  The United States found that negotiating treaties was lest costly than battling the Natives in military expeditions.

Frank Boles, director of Central Michigan University’s Clarke Historical Library, will bring this exhibit and presentation of “Native Treaties Shared Rights” to the museum on Thursday, October 17th from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.  The traveling exhibit was created by the Clarke Historical Library and the Michigan Humanities Council, and will stay on display through October at the museum.

Historical material on the Anishinabeg tribe, found at the Clarke Historical Library, is the basis of this presentation and is among the most comprehensive in the state.

This event is co-sponsored with the Tecumseh District Library and the Tecumseh Area Historical Society.
