American Indian Community Forum
Held at the Nottawaseppi Northern Health Center, 311 State Street SE, Grand Rapids, Michigan on Thursday, November 13, 2014, the "American Indian Community Forum" was the first public event held as part of the planning stage of the "Gi-gikinomaage-min: Defend Our History, Unlock Your Spirit" project. That project is a collaboration among several units at GVSU including the Kutsche Office of Local History, Native American Advisory Board, Office of Multicultural Affairs, and GVSU Special Collections and Archives. The program is funded in part by a grant from the Michigan Humanities Council, an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. The goal of this project is to document the experience of American Indian elders who lived in Grand Rapids during the relocation period.
