Potogan Made by the Odawa Indians

Content Description: 

Potogans, such as this modern reproduction made from white birch, were used by the Odawa and other Native American tribes to grind corn.

The Odawa or Ottawa, a Canadian tribe, were allied to the French. Some of members of the tribe participated in the attack on the British forces under Lt. Col. Washington at Fort Necessity.

Recently, they loaned artifacts now on exhibit at Fort Necessity National Battlefield.
