MMA Ask An Expert:
Tribal Perspectives on America 250 Commemoration

Tuesday, April 16
2 pm

As the United States of America prepares for it’s 250th birthday, there is no better time to reflect on what has happened on this continent in the last two and a half centuries. Particularly, for the first people here, the tribal nations. This conversation will ask questions, such as “what does 1776 mean for tribes”, “what are the repercussions of the colonies breaking away from England for tribes” and “what role did Michigan’s Anishnaabek play in this and where were they left out”. This program will be led by Eric Hemenway, Director of the Archives and Records department for the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians. The goal is to think outside the box regarding 1776, which may create more questions than answers. Which is a good thing!

Location: The MMA Zoom account. You can join via phone or the internet. Instructions for connecting will be sent with your registration confirmation. 

The session will be facilitated by Lisa Craig Brisson, Executive Director for the Michigan Museums Association.
