Sunday, May 28, 3:00 - Speaker Jeremy Turner, "Life as a Shawnee in 1700s Ohio Territory"

We are excited to begin our 2017 Speaker Series with Jeremy Turner, a Shawnee Native American from Indianapolis. The Shawnees were the most prevalent tribe in our particular area, and under their war chief, Blue Jacket, they were a significant force in the 1791 Battle of the Wabash and the 1794 Battle of Fort Recovery. Hopefully, you saw the schedule (also on Face Book and Website) of speakers for this summer and can see how this presentation sets the stage for the remainder of the 2017 museum presentations. Jeremy was here as a speaker (different topic) several years ago, and he was well received, so we are looking forward to his return.

There is no charge for attendance.
