Bill Kemp shares remembered and misremembered history of the Kickapoo Tribe | Community Voices

UIS Lunch and Learn Series Logo

Bill Kemp is an award-winning writer and librarian who recently spoke at the UIS Lunch and Learn forum about his project "The Unconquerable Kickapoo of Central Illinois": an effort to explore the history of the previous natives of the land, clear up fictitious narratives of their time both in and out of central Illinois, and detail efforts of repatriating culturally significant places and objects to the existing descendants of the Kickapoo Tribe.
