Where It All Began: SLC trip to Marinette

 

Posoh!

On July 8th, the SLC students had the opportunity to travel up to the mouth of the bay where the Menominee People originally started in Marinette, Wisconsin for the No Back 40 Mine project. We stopped at seven known locations of garden beds, caches (storage of food for winter), burial mounds, dug up burial mounds, the spirit rock, ceremonial circle dance rings, the Oxbow where the first General Council meeting was held to determine the clans, also other stops. We also went down to the lake where we were greeted by a sturgeon. It was good to see our future generations coming together and remembering our ancestors. As the day was coming to an end and we were heading home, on the side of the road a huge beautiful eagle flew up out of the ditch and flew right next to the bus and looked in at all of us.! Such an amazing sight and feeling to have experienced. ❤️
