Water has always been more than a natural resource to the Odawa of Little Traverse Bay. It has shaped their history, livelihood and even political decisions. Historically, waterways were an integral part of Odawa identify and they continue to be to this day.

The presentation will take place online via Zoom and registration is required. Participants will receive the Zoom link a day or so prior to the presentation.
