In 1838, the Potawatomi Indians in the state of Indiana were forcibly removed from their ancestral homelands by order of the U.S. government. The 859 Potawatomi who started the journey travelled across Indiana, Illinois, Missouri and finally Kansas before finally arriving at their intended destination. The loss of life, 41 in total, resulted in the removal becoming known as the Potawatomi Trail of Death.

One thing to keep in mind is Potawatomi has Dialects

Bodewadmimwen Department

We encourage the use the Potawatomi language whenever possible.

Spiritual:
The Language Department hopes this section will be an area were tribal members can learn a little about some of our traditional ceremonies as well as access some of the many scriptural pieces which have been written in Potawatomi. We hope to add the ten commandments, and other scriptural pieces as time allows.

Wisdom:
These are a series of old tapes done with an unknown speaker in perhaps the 1970’s or early 1980’s. This elder is giving his thoughts about various topics. Each tape was 15 minute on each side. He would talk for a couple moments in English then say the entire thing in Potawatomi.
