The Watkins Museum of History is marking Native American Day (FRI) with a new exhibit. "Under Protest: Emigrant Tribes in Franklin County" tells the story of 11 tribes and their forced resettlement in the 1800s. Steve Nowak, executive director of the Watkins Museum and the Douglas County Historical Society, says the exhibit tells their story through photographs, maps and artifacts.

The exhibit will continue through January 2016. It's a collaboration between the Watkins Museum, the Franklin County Historical Society and Haskell Indian Nations University.
