Nas-wau-kee Indian marker in Culver still needs funds
Donations are still needed to fund the metal plaque to attach to the boulder for the Chief Nas-wau-kee historical marker at Lake Maxinkuckee. The dedication will be September 16 at 5 p.m. The boulder was placed and landscaped by Boy Scout Bryan McKinney for his Eagle award.
The plaque will be 20x24 inches and cost $750. To donate to help pay for the Nas-wau-kee plaque, please send check to Potawatomi Trail of Death Assn., Fulton Co. Hist. Soc, 37 E 375 N, Rochester IN 46975. FCHS is a not-for-profit 501( c ) 3 corporation so donations are tax deductible.
