One of my song-poems The Potawatomi Gathering 2005 made it into the Michigan Indian Sovereignty and Treaties curriculum developed by The Nokomis Learning Center . The Nokomis Learning Center is dedicated to the preservation and presentation of the history, arts, and culture of the Anishinaabe people-the Ojibwa, Odawa, and Potawatomi Indians. My poem appears at the end of lesson 3C "Treaties and Potawatomi Removal."
I want to thank Denise Blair Leach at Michigan State University for taking enough interest to visit my site and to read my song-poems and wanting to include 'The Potawatomi Gathering 2005' in their curriculum. It is a great honor for me knowing that there are some of our young native kids over in Michigan reading my song-poem!
