Event Description:

What is a treaty? This event explores the historic and contemporary impact of treaties between Great Lakes Native nations and the U.S.

Indiana has a rich history predating its 1816 statehood. What is now known as Indiana was inhabited by tribal nations including the Miami, Potawatomi, Wea, Shawnee, Kickapoo and Delaware. Learn from a panel of experts, including Miami, Delaware, and Potawatomi voices, on how the St. Marys Treaties of 1818 affected Indiana’s first peoples, the future settlement of their land, and how and why treaties are still relevant today.

Parking available in the White River State Park underground garage off Washington St. and available on a first-come/first-served basis. Parking in this garage will be validated.

Walk-ins welcome. RSVP's encouraged by Nov. 4

Presented by Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art and Indiana Historical Society.
