of the Chippewas

Erected to the memory
Chief Okemos
of the Chippewas
whose tribe once occupied the ground
upon which this school now stands.

* Brave in battle * Wise in council *
* Honorable in peace *

After his people became ravaged by disease
and dispersed by the incoming white race
he still remained a chief, proud that he was
once a leader of brave men.

He died December 5, 1858, and his body rests
at Shim-ni-con, on Grand River in Ionia County,Michigan.
