Potawatomi Removals: Forced and "Voluntary"

The removals of many Potawatomi from the land regions of around southern Lake Michigan – the result of socio-political, cultural conflict, and diminishing resource pressures – is the focus of this event. The "voluntary" removals, largely traced back to the Chicago 1833 treaty, and one forced removal, the Trail of Death, will be discussed in detail by our speaker, George Godfrey, PhD, whose presentation is supported by an Ohio State Global Arts + Humanities Discovery Theme grant.

Supported by an Ohio State Global Arts + Humanities Discovery Theme grant for the project "Toward Truth and Reconciliation: Present-Day Indigenous Peoples in Ohio."
