Presented by Eric Hemenway, this talk will look at the history of the Odawa from the Upper Great Lakes and the long, and often, difficult path the tribe had to take to stay in Michigan. Eric Hemenway is an Anishnaabe/Odawa from Cross Village, Mi. He is the Director of Repatriation, Archives and Records for the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians. Eric, along with the staff of LTBB Archives, works to create historical materials to educate the public on the history of the Odawa, as well as collect and preserve information and artifacts that are relevant to the history of the tribe.

All Friends @ the Carnegie programs are held at the Carnegie Building at 451 E. Mitchell Street, unless otherwise noted. The programs are offered at 7:00 p.m. on the fourth Monday of every month, except May (third Monday) and December (no program).
