Oct. 10: Indigenous Peoples’ Day in Chelsea


(Chelsea Update would like to thank Cathy Muha for the information in this story. There are two corrections to this story that are in bold in the text.)

A group of Chelsea people will be presenting a two-part event looking at the history of Indigenous People in the Chelsea area as well as nationally.

On Sunday, Oct. 10 at 2 p.m. an acknowledgement of the native people of this land will take place at the border-to-border trailhead on North Territorial Road near the Lyndon Township Hall.

 The inspiration to have the ceremony there is the newly installed sculpture of a Native American woman along the trail. People are invited to walk the trail before or after the land acknowledgement and view the sculpture, titled “Dedicated to the Women Leaders of Michigan.” It is by artist John Daniel.

On Monday, Oct. 11 at 6:30 p.m., Heather Bruegl, M.A. a member of the Oneida tribe of Stockbridge Munsee, WI, will speak on “A History of Native American Activism”. Heather is a Native American Historian and Director of Education of the Forge Project Fellowship.
