History

December, 1997
The Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe of Michigan established its Historic Preservation Office. As appointed by the Tribal Council, the Ziibiwing Center will locate, preserve, protect, and maintain the tribe's historic and cultural resources and handle all Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) related issues including disposition and reburial.

Ongoing Work

The Ziibiwing Center works collaboratively with the Michigan Anishinaabek Cultural Preservation and Repatriation Alliance (MACPRA) to protect and preserve all tribal and cultural resources of the past, present, and future. MACPRA consists of all the federally-recognized American Indian tribes and the two state historic tribes in the state of Michigan.
The Ziibiwing Center currently maintains and utilizes eight cemeteries throughout the central Michigan area. These cemeteries are used to preserve and honor the remains of our ancestry.
