Ohio's Ten Tribes

Planning for a five-thousand-square-foot permanent exhibition, a website, and educational materials examining the forced removal of ten Native American tribes from Ohio in the early 19th century and the historical and contemporary impact on these tribes.

The Ohio Historical Society (OHS) requests an America's Historical and Cultural Organizations (AHCO): Planning Grant in the amount of $60,194 to plan Ohio's Ten Tribes over 12 months beginning in August 2013 and ending in August 2014. The goal is for OHS, in collaboration with community members from the ten federally recognized historic tribes of Ohio, to plan an exhibition exploring the removal story of Native Americans from Ohio. In order to address this goal, OHS will design the physical components of the exhibition; develop an interpretive plan for the exhibition that includes the voices of scholars and Native American experts and community members; plan for public programming and interpretive strategies on the museum floor; draft a curriculum guide for educators that can be used in tandem with the exhibition; and outline a website to complement the exhibition.
