This November, for Native American Heritage month, the Nottawaseppi Huron Band of the Potawatomi is emphasizing food sovereignty.

When Michigan’s Native American tribes end up in the headlines, it often revolves around casinos. But there’s a lot more to the story. In Southwest Michigan, tribes are starting to inject their casino revenue into brand new businesses, like architecture and renewable energy.

The Nottawaseppi Huron Band of the Potawatomi will pay more than $15 million to the state of Michigan. The tribe agreed to share part of the revenue from Firekeepers Casino with local governments and schools.
