Ask an Expert:
Land Acknowledgement Statements

Thursday, March 25
12:00 pm

More museums are choosing to recognize that they land they occupy is part of traditional territories of local Indigenous People. Join Eric Hemenway, Director of Archives/Records for the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians, for a conversation about Land Acknowledgement Statements. 

Eric works to collect and curate historical materials pertaining to LTBB Odawa. Those materials are used to create exhibits, signage, publications, curriculums, programs and support the tribal government. Eric has experience working under the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA). Eric currently sits on the Michigan Historical Commission and Little Traverse Conservancy. He is a past board member for the Michigan Historical Society, Michigan Humanities Council, National NAGPRA Review Committee and Emmet County Historical Commission.
