Central Upper Peninsula Planning and Development Regional Commission

Potawatomi Interpretive Homestead

$3,161 • Escanaba

The Central Upper Peninsula Planning and Development (CUPPAD) Regional Commission, in partnership with the Hannahville Indian Community Cultural Committee and Potawatomi Heritage Center, promoted historical and cultural awareness by creating an interpretive exhibit along the U.P. Hidden Coast Recreation Heritage Route, a local designated Pure Michigan Byway. CUPPAD assisted the Hannahville Indian Community Cultural Committee and Potawatomi Heritage Center in designing an interpretive exhibit located along the U.P. Hidden Coast route in Cedar River, the last Potawatomi homestead of the Hannahville Indian Community before being located where they are today. A smaller, but otherwise identical, sign is display at the Potawatomi Heritage Center. Included in the exhibit was a QR barcode linking visitors to an oral history video further illustrating site significance while also incorporating Potawatomi language.
