BEULAH — Helen Tanner was only about 5 feet tall, but she is remembered as a pioneering giant in writing Great Lakes Indian history.
The noted ethnohistorian’s research and testimony proved crucial to a historic 1979 federal court ruling that upheld Michigan Indian treaty fishing rights.
Tanner died late Wednesday night at her home less than a month before her 95th birthday on July 5. A memorial service will be planned later.
