About Chief Shawano Chapter  


The Chief Shawano Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution was organized July 13, 1996, and chartered on October 12, 1996.


The National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution approved our chapter name, Chief Shawano, which was suggested by one of our members that lived in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. Chief Shawano was her ancestor and the chief of the Sault Ste. Marie tribe of the Chippewa (Ojibwe) Indians. He signed many treaties and was well known by the American geographer, geologist, and ethnologist, Henry Schoolcraft. The Chief was also influential in the area and created a syllabary language for his people. There is mention of Chief Shawano in the Michigan Pioneer Society book of 1899.  
   Our chapter was organized in July of 1996 with 13 members. By the time of our charter in October of the same year, we had grown to 26. At present our membership is 35 and our chapter actively represents DAR. We have received numerous awards from DAR for our efforts. Help is available with geneology research to anyone interested in becoming a member. God Bless America and God Bless DAR!


In July, 2014 the Chief Shawano Chapter held a luncheon honoring the Veterans of the Vietnam Era Veterans. Over 60 people attended; including over 30 Veterans. Each Vietnam Veteran was given a Vietnam War flag and a special pin from the Department of Defense.  Everyone enjoyed a delicious lunch and an entertaining musical program performed by local Veterans.  We were especially grateful to our member, Gloria Campbell, who performed a special musical tribute to the Veterans.  The C.A.R. State President, Courtney Ozog presented her Veterans State project.  Everyone who attended was thankful for the recognition and thanks we were able to demonstrate for the Service they had given to our Country.
