Ecorse resident and beloved Chippewa and Pottawatomi artisan James Aquash was born into the Walpole Island First Nation in Ontario, Canada.  In the early 1970s, he became involved with the gay liberation movement on the Wayne State University campus.  As a longtime member of the local Native community, Aquash was noted for presenting his beadwork and basket weaving at area pow wows.
