Pageants and Plays: Odawa in the Public Eye
Thursday, May 26, 2022
5:30pm – 7:00pm
For decades, the Odawa of Northern Michigan participated in some of the largest tourist draws in the state: pageants and plays held right here in Harbor Springs. Join historian Eric Hemenway to explore the story of these exhibitions and see how that story goes beyond the performances themselves and delves into the social and political climate of the early 20th century.
Eric Hemenway is an Anishnaabe/Odawa from Cross Village, Michigan. He is the Director of Repatriation, Archives and Records for the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians, a federally recognized tribe in northern Michigan.
Hemenway’s talk will take place at the Harbor Springs History Museum and costs $10 per person. Coffee and cookies will be provided. Advanced registration is appreciated.
