List of ships of the Royal Canadian Navy

The Royal Navy was responsible for all of British North America, until Canadian Confederation in 1867. After Confederation the Royal Navy increasingly shared naval responsibilities with Canada but retained sole responsibility for other British colonies in North America, until they joined Canada. In 1910, the Department of the Naval Service was created to consolidate all naval services in Canada, receiving royal assent in 1911 to become the Royal Canadian Navy. Within a few years many of the non-military naval services and vessels integrated under the RCN were returned to their original departments. [1] The list of ships of the Royal Canadian Navy contains the surface warships, submarines and auxiliary vessels in service from 1910 up to the early 1990s. This includes all commissioned, non-commissioned, loaned or hired ships in service within the RCN. [2] Ships in this list also include Royal Navy vessels with RCN crews, such as TR-series minesweepers of the First World War, and aircraft carriers of the Second World War.

Indiana State Parks

Pokagon State Park is located near Angola off I-69. Natural lakes abound in this area and the park borders on Lake James and Snow Lake which offer abundant opportunities for boating, swimming and fishing.

What a thrill! That's what you'll say once you've experienced the quarter mile toboggan track at speeds of 35-40 miles per hour! The toboggan operates weekends from the Friday after Thanksgiving through February, with extended holiday hours. The toboggan is closed on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Legend says that Leopold Pokagon was the son of a Chippawa father and Ottawa mother, born around the year 1775. He was abducted from his Chippawa village by a Potawatomi chief and given to Chief Topenebee of the Potawatomi. He was given the name Pokagon because he was wearing a headdress which contained a human rib. The word Pokagon means "rib". However, books later written by his son, Simon, tend to refute this legend.

Simon Pokagon, son of Leopold, was born in an old Potawatomi village. When Simon was eleven years old, his father died and area settlers took the task of educating him. He eventually attended four years at Notre Dame, one year at Oberlin, and two years at Twinsburg College in Ohio. During his college career, Simon met and married a Potawatomi Indian girl name Lonidaw. They built a wigwam home of bark and poles in a stately wood near a crystal lake somewhere in Northern Indiana. Lake Lonidaw, in Pokagon State Park, got its name because it is said to resemble this legendary lake.

In treaties of 1826 and 1830, the Potawatomi tribe sold all their land which made up a large part of Northern Indiana and included the present site of Chicago. They were compensated with three cents an acre, which even at that time was considered an extremely small amount. It would be 70 years before they would be fully paid for the land. Following the treaty of 1830, the Potawatomi were evicted from the area and were relocated west of the Mississippi River to what is now Kansas. Leopold's band moved on their own to an area north of South Bend near Dowagiac, Michigan. In 1893, Simon Pokagon and his family attended the World's Fair in Chicago. It was there that Chief Pokagon transferred the deeds for the land. The occasion was a formality that was long overdue.

In 1925, after careful planning and negotiating, the residents of Steuben County purchased 580 acres along the shores of Lake James and Snow Lake. The land was tendered as a Christmas gift from the residents of Steuben County to the State of Indiana. Another additional 127 acres were added by the State to make a total of 707 acres.

1926 was the actual starting point of park construction. The park at that time consisted of 707 acres and was the third largest park in the state. After approximately two years, the twenty unit hotel (Potawatomi Inn) was completed, costing $3500.00 per unit. On February 23, 1927, Colonel Richard Lieber, State Conservation Commissioner suggested the name Pokagon after the Chief. By unanimous agreement, the park was officially named Pokagon State Park.

Most of the park construction was done by the Civilian Conservation Corps. (CCC) between 1934 and 1942. They constructed the roads, trails, camping units, walks, gate house, cabins, beach house, shelter house, Spring Shelter, Saddle Barn, and the first toboggan slide. In addition, they planted thousands of young trees.

The park presently has 1,203 acres of woods and shoreline. People come from all over the Midwest to enjoy the park and recreational activities offered all four seasons of the year.

Pokagon [Rib]

Vitals: ca 1775 - 1841
Alias: Leopold Pokagon |

Pokagon was a headman among the St. Joseph Potawatomi and veteran of the Northwest Indian War. He ascended to leadership after marrying Elizabeth Topinabee, daughter of prominent tribal leader Topinabee and granddaughter of Nanaquiba. After the death of Topinabee, Pokagon took control of the St. Joseph villages. The St. Joseph Potawatomi had a long association with French Catholic missionaries. Pokagon understood that if the Potawatomi were seen as Catholic converts and on the path to an Anglo way of life they could evade removal. This proved true and Pokagon&rsquos villages were allowed to stay in Michigan and Indiana.

About the 1250 Scale Producers' Gallery

This photo gallery features mostly unmodified models from a variety of 1250 scale model producers. For scratch-builds and significantly modified models, see the Reader Gallery. For more information about producers of 1250 scale models, see the 1250 Scale Modeling History and General Information section elsewhere on this site.

Photography Notes: This photo gallery features models from a variety of 1:1200 and 1:1250 scale producers. Some of the models may have been enhanced with additional paint work or details by the collector or owner of the model, but for the most part they are not substantially altered from their factory condition. Because there are so many models in these scales, the gallery concentrates on models that are not easily seen elsewhere. We may include photos of models found elsewhere on the web, but our present goal is to fill in gaps, rather than simply repeat what is already available to you. Extensive photo coverage of NAVIS/NEPTUN and ARGOS models are readily found at their respective websites and we recommend that the viewer go to the direct links to their sites, which are found on the 1250 SCALE Main Page, and view those models there.

SOUTH BEND - Charles Hartsell, age 48, of Bremen, Indiana was sentenced by United States District Court Judge Damon R. Leichty for conspiracy to sell and dispose of one or more firearms to an unlawful user of controlled substances, announced United States Attorney Thomas L. Kirsch II.

Hartsell was sentenced to 46 months in prison followed by 2 years of supervised release.

According to documents in this case, in February of 2019, Mr. Hartsell met a male associate at the Four Winds South Bend casino, which is located on tribal land of the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians. The two men transferred a .22 rifle and a 9 mm pistol from the associate’s car to Mr. Hartsell’s car. Mr. Hartsell then drove with his associate to a location in South Bend in order to meet a man referred to as “J”, who was known by Mr. Hartsell to be a drug user. Mr. Hartsell tried to sell the two firearms to “J”, but “J” decided not to purchase the two firearms. Mr. Hartsell and his associate then purchased some heroin and methamphetamine from “J” and drove back to the casino. When they arrived back at the casino, Mr. Hartsell and his associate were detained by Pokagon Band tribal police officers. The two firearms were recovered from Mr. Hartsell’s car by police.

Imprints: The Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians and the City of Chicago by John N. Low

The Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians has been a part of Chicago since its founding. In very public expressions of indigeneity, they have refused to hide in plain sight or assimilate. Instead, throughout the city’s history, the Pokagon Potawatomi Indians have openly and aggressively expressed their refusal to be marginalized or forgotten—and in doing so, they have contributed to the fabric and history of the city.

Imprints: The Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians and the City of Chicago examines the ways some Pokagon Potawatomi tribal members have maintained a distinct Native identity, their rejection of assimilation into the mainstream, and their desire for inclusion in the larger contemporary society without forfeiting their “Indianness.” Mindful that contact is never a one-way street, Low also examines the ways in which experiences in Chicago have influenced the Pokagon Potawatomi. Imprints continues the recent scholarship on the urban Indian experience before as well as after World War II.

Publication Date: February 1st, 2016

“Written in engaging prose by a Pokagon Potawatomi tribal intellectual and activist, John N. Low’s Imprints will forever change the way you think of Chicago. This is not only a sophisticated narrative of the inextricable relations of Native peoples to historical and contemporary urban spaces but also the story of a stubborn tribe who insisted on making and maintaining places for themselves all around their southern Lake Michigan homeland.”
Brian Klopotek, author of Recognition Odysseys: Indigeneity, Race, and Federal Tribal Recognition Policy in Three Louisiana Indian Communities

“Every American city is built on Indian land and today most Native American people live in urban places, yet urban Indigenous histories remain largely hidden. John N. Low’s work is a corrective to this, showing us that Chicago has a rich Potawatomi past—and present. From cultural persistence to political activism, the Potawatomi have left a mark on the city that, after reading Imprints, will be almost impossible to forget.”
Coll Thrush, author of Native Seattle: Histories from the Crossing-Over Place
