1854 TREATY AUTHORITY

Sandy Lake Tragedy Memorial Ceremonies, July 31st

Mikwendaagoziwag Ceremonies at Sandy Lake

 
All are welcome to join GLIFWC in commemorating the 1850 Sandy Lake Tragedy. It is a time to remember the sacrifices made by many tribal members who arrived at Sandy Lake to receive annuity payments, but found only inadequate and spoiled rations, delayed payments and for many, death. A morning ceremony will be held at the east boat landing, then a paddle across the lake. Ceremonies and a noon feast to follow at the Mikwendaagoziwag Monument at the Sandy Lake Recreation Site. See GLIFWC’s Facebook page for maps, directions, and details.
