Jami and Jane hold a check from the Nottawaseppi Huron Band of the Potawatomi, along with the Match-E-Be-Nash-She-Wish Band of the Pottawatomi Indians, and the Pokagon Band of the Potawatomi for over $3800. The tribes raised funds by selling t-shirts at the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Persons rally in Grand Rapids on May 5, 2023. They generously donated the funds to the Lodge of Bravery and another shelter in Michigan to combat domestic and sexual violence and MMIP. The ARC is so very thankful! Miigwech!
