6/25/2013 6:04:00 PM Harbor History Talk set for June 27
The Harbor Springs Area Historical Society is pleased to present their next Harbor History Talk Thursday, June 27, 2013, at 5:30 pm when they will examine the War of 1812 from the Native American Perspective. The talk will complement the museum's new temporary exhibit,"Turning Point: The War of 1812 from the Native American Perspective" which opened on June 15, 2013.
The speaker will be Eric Hemenway, Director of Repatriation, Archives and Records for the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians. Hemenway served as the curator for the Turning Point exhibit and, through his work at the tribe, is a regular speaker on tribal history. Hemenway will explore the tribe's role in the War of 1812 and the lasting impact this oft forgotten conflict had on the Odawa people of Little Traverse Bay.
Due to the popularity of the lecture series and limited seating, advance reservations are requested by calling (231) 526-9771. The talk will begin at 5:30 p.m. in the second-floor Anton Library and refreshments will be served. Admission is free for this talk thanks to support from the Michigan Humanities Council. The talk will take place at the Harbor Springs History Museum, 349 E. Main Street, Harbor Springs.
