It is a time to remember the sacrifices made by the many tribal members who arrived at Sandy Lake Minne- sota to receive annuity payments but found only inadequate and spoiled rations delayed payments and for many death. While the annuities were to be paid out in October only a portion of the promised annuity arrived as late as December forcing long treks home through ice and snow since the waterways were frozen over. Fortunately the commitment of the people to return home foiled a scheme to remove tribal communities from Wisconsin and Upper Michigan to the Minnesota territory. About 400 perished either at Sandy Lake or en route home. Word of the tragedy spread and precipi- tated Chief Buffalos journey to Washington DC to protest the removal efforts. President Millard Fillmore agreed to rescind the 1850 Removal Order and later in the 1854 Treaty permanent reservations were allocated. It is a good time to remember those people their struggles and determination and to say chi miigwech Agenda A morning ceremony at the East Boat Landing is followed by a paddle in canoes or kayaks across Sandy Lake where ceremonies are held at the Mikwendaagoziwag Monument located at the Sandy Lake Recreation Site on Highway 65 north of McGregor Minnesota.Anoon feast follows.
