Iwgwien! (Thanks lots!) to the Kansas Humanities Council, an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, who has provided partial funding for this project. We also received an additional grant from KHC which enabled us to add new material to our language section.

We added excerpts from the Gospel According to Luke as translated into Potawatomi by the Jesuit missionaries and compiled by Maurice Gailland, S.J. to the website. This work was funded by a Kansas Humanities Council grant.
We have added references to our reference page, including some websites about Potawatomi history and culture that you might find useful, or simply enjoy. The Walpole Island website address has been added here as well as on the Nishnabe'k/ the People home page.
For earlier changes to the site, see our revisions page. An outline of site contents is also available.
The Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation official website. It has information on our Potawatomi Tribe and reservation; on the tribal council and tribal programs, including phone numbers; on the history of the tribe and some of our stories; and about the casino on the reservation. The brochure that is given to visitors at the reservation is also on line.
We hope you find these materials useful and enjoy them as much as we have enjoyed making them available to you. If you do, please come back from time to time!
Pama mine' ngoduk! (See you later sometime!)
