Culture

Mission Statement:

The Culture Department strives to honor the memory and sacrifices of our ancestors through:

  • The education and revitalization of traditional Bodéwadmi culture, ethnobotanical knowledge, history, and language
  • The repatriation of the tribe’s ancestors and sacred objects
  • The protection, preservation, and management of significant historical properties, traditional cultural properties (TCP’s), and archaeological sites
  • The preservation and curation of significant cultural objects, archaeological artifacts, and historical records.

These duties represent the Nottawaseppi Huron Band of the Potawatomi’s sovereign right to empower the spiritual well-being of tribal members, raise the level of awareness regarding important contemporary historic preservation issues, and create a solid cultural and historical foundation that ensures the persistence of the unique history, culture, and language of the Bodéwadmi people.
