Native American artist Jason Wesaw takes campers into the world of local Potawatomi Indians during this special camp about traditional Potawatomi pottery. The word “Saugatuck” is derived from the Potawatomi word “Zagitek”, which means “where the mouth of the river is.”   

Jason shares how he learned traditional tribal art forms along with with other stories about our West Michigan landscape and special spaces like Mount Baldhead. During the camp students engage with materials from their own surroundings by using locally-harvested clay as they learn the traditional process of building, adorning, and firing coil pots.
