Just one week ago marked 177 years since the the 1838 Potawatomi Trail of Death, which forced the ancestors of today’s Citizen Potawatomi Nation from their homelands in the Great Lakes Region to a reservation in Kansas. CPN has several resources available to learn about the Trail of Death, including a daily journal kept by one of its participants, as well as the history of the Potawatomi Trail of Death Association at  https://www.potawatomi.org/culture/trail-of-death

To learn more about the Removal Period of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation’s forebearers, please visit the revamped website of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation Cultural Heritage Center by visiting this link.
