Otāēqciah (Crane) IK

A Menominee Clan-Based Indigenous Knowledge Community.

The Otāēqciah Clan are the knowledgeable in architecture, construction, and the arts. With those clan strengths, comes knowledge. In this community you will find collections that are affiliated with this clan's bundle of knowledge.

Some collections kept in this community are:

  • Historic Villages
  • Community Buildings
  • Manufacturing
  • Tools
  • Traditional & Contempoarty Arts
  • Songs
  • Dances


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