      New sign for Presque Isle Park

      Presque Isle Park now has a brand new sign. An unveiling ceremony of the new sign occurred at the site on Monday.

      The Keweenaw Bay Indian Community and the City of Marquette, along with many others, came together to honor all who made the new sign possible.

      Ojibwe artist Sherri Loonsfoot-Aldred created the original sign with oils. It was then digitized and made into a sign by Ben Franklin and Cook's Signs.

      The KBIC funded the project, which totaled about $5,800.

      "I think this really speaks well to a collaboration between cultures and the city, and I think that that is a really important component to this project," said Project Coordinator Kristine Granger.

      "I feel very honored that I was a part of it, that I got to represent both my culture and my tribe, and also the city that I love and live in. It's pretty amazing," said Loonsfoot-Aldred.

      Many other groups helped make the project happen.
