The Citizen Potawatomi Nation will design and fabricate the Seventh Fire exhibition in its Cultural Heritage Center to foster increased knowledge of its culture and history among enrolled members and the general public. Following a flood in 2014 that temporarily closed the center, tribal leadership is creating a series of new galleries to tell the story of Potawatomi cultural loss and revival through the seventh generation of its people. The project team will focus on two galleries that will feature vignettes, graphic and didactic panels, interactive and hands-on displays, audio, video, and artifacts from the permanent collection. The center staff will create a measuring tool to distribute to visitors to record pre- and post-content knowledge relating to exhibition content. The center will unveil the exhibition during the Citizen Potawatomi Nation's annual Family Festival at the conclusion of the project.
