Kenēw (Eagle) Collection

Kenēw (Eagle) Collection

A Menominee Clan-Based Collection of Indigenous Knowledge.

The Kenēw Clan ensure freedom and justice for the people. With those clan strengths, comes knowledge. In this collection you will find sub-collections that are affiliated with this clan's bundle of knowledge.

Some collections kept in this community are:

  • War
  • Veterans
  • Menominee Warriors Society
  • Treaty Rights
  • Legal Cases
  • Environmental Justice 
    • Crandon Mine
    • Back 40 Mine
  • Human Rights
    • MMIW


*As we learn more about the clans from the community and continue to consult with the people, sub-collections can be re-oriented under a better suited Clan-Based Collection of Indigenous Knowledge. We aspire to grow our understanding of the Menominee Clan System so that we may include additional clans and their strengths. These Clan-Based Collections of Indigenous Knowledge are an opportunity to indigenize how we gather and look for cultural heritage materials.
