La Tray’s emotionally-charged presentation, entitled “The Day That Finally Came” draws on 150 years of history to tell the story of how the Little Shell became the 574th tribe to be recognized by the United States government in 2019. With more than 6,000 enrolled members, the Little Shell is connected to all area Anishinaabe tribes, including the Chippewa, Cree, and Assiniboine people, and, particularly, the Métis, or mixed-race.
