Peter White Public Library, Shiras Room, Marquette MI 49855
On Tuesday, February 6, 2018, the Peter White Public Library will present the talk, Native Rights and Broken Promises: Early Mining Issues at 7:00 pm in the library’s Shiras room as part of its Building Love: Imagine series of events.

Native People’s law attorney Rich Vander Veen will discuss the case of Charlotte Kobogom vs. Jackson Iron Company. After signing a contract and promising Charlotte’s father that they would share the wealth from the iron ore he had found for them, the Jackson Iron Company reneged. Promises made, promises not kept! Not only will Rich present the details of the case, but he will also emphasize that tolerance is needed in America and promises need to be kept.

There is no admission charge to attend thanks to sponsorship by the Peter White Public Library and Forward Action Michigan-UP. For more information, visit www.pwpl.info or call 226-4318.

Career and Technical Education Month

Event Dates and Times

2/1/2018 - 2/28/2018
Nationwide
Career and Technical Education Month®, or CTE Month®, is a public awareness campaign taking place each February to celebrate the value of CTE and the achievements and accomplishments of CTE programs across the country.

One way we are celebrating CTE month in Marquette and Alger Counties this February is by recognizing teachers, students, individuals and community organizations who enhance CTE by contributing to the improvement, promotion, development, quality and progress of CTE. The Marquette Alger CTE committee, whose main focus is helping young people make the best possible career decisions, is sponsoring these awards. In addition to the aforementioned categories, students presenting the best showcase display and poster design at their schools will also be recognized.

Watch and listen for more information and contests throughout the month, and beyond, on Facebook, Twitter and other media outlets. https://www.facebook.com/ctemarquettealger/
