Potawatomi Customs and Traditional Medicines

  • North Berrien Historical Museum 300 Coloma Avenue Coloma, MI, 49038 United States (map)

The Potawatomi inhabited the southwestern portion of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula long before European settlers began arriving in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century. The Pokagon band of Potawatomi Indians remains in the area today, preserving cultural traditions and autonomy as a federally recognized Native American nation.

Andy Jackson, Pokagon Tribal Council member, will discuss some of the traditional roles of Potawatomi men and women as well as cover a variety of the natural medicines that they used both historically and today.
