Indigenous People’s Day

"Come Walk the Portage Path" is where Emmanuel Learners joined Lippman School, Portage Path Elementary and the Northern Cheyenne residents in a heritage parade to the John Brown Mansion. The walk celebrated the 2nd Annual Indigenous People's Day honoring those that lived in the region centuries before the discovery of Columbus. Emmanuel learners became knowledgeable of the particular ceremonial dressings the Cheyenne culture wore and also the native land divides that were established right here in Akron along the Portage Trail.
