Land. Rights. Education. These were some of the things affected when the United States and Native governments signed treaties. The documents created agreements that profoundly changed both the Federal Government and the Native tribes. Europeans gained perpetual right to the land they called the United States. In return Native Americans gained many guarantees, some granted for as long as the United States existed. Explore how land, rights, and education came together as indigenous people and the United States Government created the legal understanding that underlies today’s State of Michigan.
The exhibit is free and open to the public 8-5 Monday through Friday and runs through August 2016.
