Honoring, Healing and Remembering: the Mt. Pleasant Indian Industrial Boarding School
The Pokagon Band is again offering Pokagon citizens *(age 18-54) and their guests the chance to attend a day of fellowship recognizing the suffering, strength and resilience of the Anishinabe children who were separated from their families and culture at this institution.
