Public Invited to Native Land Return
September 21, 2019
Upper Sandusky, Ohio
For 176 years, generations of Methodist missionary societies and Methodists in West Ohio have held in trust the land upon which the Methodist mission among the Wyandotte (also known as Wyandot) people was planted. On September 21, 2019, in Upper Sandusky, Ohio, that land will be returned to the Wyandotte Nation of Oklahoma. “A Remembrance of Our Shared History: The Wyandotte/Wyandot and the People Called Methodists”, presented by Global Ministries and the General Commission on Archives and History, will take place Saturday, September 21, 2019, at 1 p.m. The event begins at John Stewart United Methodist Church, 130 W Johnson Street, Upper Sandusky, Ohio, with a procession to the site of the Wyandot/te burial grounds and the mission church to follow. The event is free and open to the public. For planning purposes, organizers are requesting attendees to register at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/our-shared-history-the-wyandottewyandot-and-the-people-called-methodists-tickets-57543320621.
