. ‘We did it’: Birch bark scrolls recovered from auction « JO LEE MAGAZINE

INDIAN COUNTRY TODAY – Jondreau learned a few days earlier that the LiveAuctioneers website was selling off a set of four birch bark scrolls, inscribed with messages and symbols that are sacred to Ojibwe people. The scrolls, thought to date from about 1900, were held by a private collector in Ohio but are believed to have come from Michigan. Jondreau knew he had to do something, so he helped organize an online fundraising campaign to buy the scrolls. By Wednesday, the day of the auction, the campaign had raised over $5,000, exceeding the listed minimum bid of $4,500. The final purchase price was $7,500.
