Exhibit/Program
Discover: The First People of This Place (Grades 4-8) (October 14 2019)

Long before Europeans came to Michigan, Grand Rapids was the site of a Native American village. Native American villages along the Grand River would have looked very different from our present city of Grand Rapids. The First People of this Place program will discuss three Native American tribes of the Great Lakes region--Odawa (Ottawa), Ojibwe (Chippewa) and Bode'wadmi (Potawatomi). Together, these peoples form the tribes of the Three Fires and are collectively called the Anishinabek. Students will be introduced to traditional life ways, the respected role of elders, and storytelling. Program activities allow students to learn history firsthand by handling artifacts, participating in traditional children’s games, and listening to Anishinabe stories.


Objectives:

  • Students will be able to explain who the first inhabitants of Michigan were and how long humans have inhabited Michigan.
  • Students will be able to describe how the clothing, food, shelter, and technology of Michigan’s Native Americans have evolved through time.
  • Students will analyze examples of traditional and modern Anishinabe culture present in exhibit areas and in primary sources.
