The 127th General Assembly of the State of Ohio Recognizes the Shawnee Nation United Remnant Band During National American Indian Heritage Month

Bellefontaine, OH – December 12, 2007 – The Shawnee Nation, United Remnant Band was recognized by the 127th General Assembly of the State of Ohio during National American Indian Heritage Month this November. The legislators took the opportunity to honor the Tribe for its remarkable history of service while reaffirming their role as Ohio’s only State Recognized Historic Tribe of Native Americans [Am. Sub. HJR No. 8].

The Senate drafted a proclamation that applauded the Tribe for retaining its ethnic heritage over the centuries and for its contribution to Ohio’s rich, vibrant history. The House commendation recognized individuals of Shawnee descent and recognized the priceless contributions made to Ohio and the Nation.

The Tribe shares its history, tradition and culture by offering Native American Outreach programs, its bi-annual Pow Wow’s, operating a Native American museum, maintaining historical Native American and pioneer villages, and offering tours and demonstrations to the public from Zane Shawnee Caverns and Southwind Park located in Bellefontaine, OH.
