The Wea Indian Tribe of Indiana
attended the opening of the Mel and Joan
Perelman Wing of the Eiteljorg Museum
in Indianapolis on June 11, 2005.   Chief
Terry Stuff of the Wea Indian Tribe of
Indiana was requested by Chief Brian
Bucannan of the Miami Nation of
Indians of the State of Indiana to walk
together in the procession dedicating this
new wing. Pictured here are Cheif Terry
Stuff, Wau-pa Shing  and Chief Brian
Bucannan.
Also in attendance were
representatives of the
Tribes of Miami of
Oklahoma, Delaware of
Oklahoma, and
Pokagon Band of the
Pottawatomie Nation.
The wing was then
opened to all in
attendance to view the
artifacts and art
contained in the new
wing.  This opening is
another example of
efforts to enlighten
people to the history of
the Native American
People and their
culture.  Although it is
mainly dedicated to the
Western Natives, the
Wea Indian Tribe of
Indiana hope that they
expand their vision on
the rich history of this
State and its
indigenous Tribes by
including all Tribes
represented by the
descendants of the
treaty signatories that
are still living in
Indiana today.
