Kohr will speak Tuesday at library
PRINCETON — The Princeton Public Library will host Michael Kohr, Bureau County Board member and Selby Township clerk, at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Kohr will speak on the history of travel in Illinois before settlement. The Illinois River and the Galena Trail were Native American byways long before the arrival of European scouts and settlers. Kohr’s interest in Native American history and culture began as a young boy, fostered by years in the Scounting movement and by his mother, who encouraged him to read Dee Brown’s ground-breaking “Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee.”
Since 1994, he has spoken at local schools and civic organizations and he has published articles on Native history and interest in a number of Native oriented papers and publications, including, “Indian Country Today,” “The Lakota Times,” “The Lakota Journal,” “Native American Smoke Signals,” “In the Spirit of Crazy Horse” and others.
