Michigan was once home to three Indian Boarding Schools that forced Indigenous kids to "fit in" by only speaking English, cutting their hair,  and giving up their traditional clothing and names. We're working with our Tribal governments & community members to embrace #TruthAndHealing

Mary Burks


Members of the Odawa nation are among the hardest hit by PFAS pollution, and are leading the fight for clean water and air for all.

Mary Burks in the story is my mother.  She fought hard but this was a battle that she could not win.  Please share this--it needs to be known.  This will be my 1st Mother's Day without her.  She was murdered and Emmet County was so glib and uncaring.
