The area of Rock Creek that flows through our beautiful Camp Shaw was once the home of Pottawatomi Chief Shaw-Waw-Nas-See for which our camp is named.  The camp sits on the site where one of the oldest Pottawatomi village was located. In 1830, there was a great tribal council, Chief Shaw-Waw-Nas-See who was not only

respected by his tribe, but many others in the area advised his people to make a treaty with settlers, in order to maintain their friendship. There is a marker we can visit to remember him and those that came before us on this land.





The event is sponsored by the Council for Community Sustainability, a public outreach group created as part of Kankakee Community College’s sustainability initiative.
