This screening features two 30-minute segments on the Mole Lake Ojibwe and Stockbridge-Munsee Mohican tribes.

Mole Lake Ojibwe History: Recorded in the natural settings of the regions that native people have called home for centuries, the Tribal Histories series features tribal members sharing the challenges, triumphs, and time-honored traditions that have shaped their vibrant communities. In this documentary, Tribal elder Fred Ackley shares stories of the Mole Lake Band of Lake Superior Chippewa.

Stockbridge-Munsee Mohican History: By the rapids of the Red River, Kimberly Vele tells of Mohican life in the Hudson Valley of New York before their move to Stockbridge, Massachusetts, followed by their forced removal to Indiana where they joined with the Munsee tribe before their final relocation to Wisconsin. James Fenimore Cooper was incorrect in predicting the demise of the Mohican people.
