Native Americans of the Great Lakes Region: The Indigenous Midwest Prior to European Contact Day Pass 4/14
Indigenous people migrated to the Americas more than 15,000 years ago. Their settlements spread over all of North, Central and South America, long before Indigenous or Native Peoples were the original inhabitants of the Great Lakes region, having migrated from other locales many thousands of years ago. Focusing on the Potawatomi, of which he is a member, Professor Low will share his knowledge of Indigenous Peoples who lived in the Great Lakes region of what is now the United States prior to European contact and what their lives were like - beginning with Creation and moving to the 17th Century. He will address such topics as migration, housing, trade, transportation, and interactions with other tribes. Overall, he will present the incredible history and diversity of the Native Peoples of the Great Lakes region, who were and are Indigenous to these lands. John N. Low received his Ph.D. in American Culture at the University of Michigan and is an enrolled citizen of the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians. He is also the recipient of a graduate certificate in Museum Studies and a Juris Doctorate from the University of Michigan. He earned a BA from Michigan State University, a second BA in American Indian Studies from the University of Minnesota, and an MA in the Social Sciences from the University of Chicago. He is an associate professor in Comparative Studies at the Ohio State University, and also serves as the Director of the Newark Earthworks Center. He is an award-winning author, and his most recent book is Imprints, the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi and the City of Chicago (2016). THIS LECTURE WILL NOT BE RECORDED.
