Citizen Potawatomi Nation hosted a ribbon cutting for a new playground at Citizen Place North.

CPN Housing Director Scott George opened with a prayer, and some of the elders drummed and sang traditional songs.

The event also included food, games and giveaways. The Housing Department and Workforce and Social Services served hot dogs and hot chocolate. Cole Rattan with the Language Department led basketball in Potawatomi. Cheryl Richardson with WIC offered face painting.

Citizen Place North also has several new units under construction, with another playground and storm shelter planned to be added.
