Wahbememe Burial Site and Monument

Potawatomi Chief Wahbememe (White Pigeon) was one of the signers of the 1795 Treaty of Greenville. Among other things, this treaty allowed unfettered access to Great Lakes forts within the future state of Michigan by the United States. 

Chief Wahbememe was friendly toward the newly arriving white settlers. During the War of 1812, when the Potawatomi allied with the British, he reportedly served as a messenger between local Potawatomi bands and Main Poc and Tecumseh.
