BENTON TOWNSHIP — The new Mshkiki Community Clinic is for just what it says: the community.

“This is our home, it’s our community, so whenever we do something, it’s not just for us, but it’s also for the other people that live here, because they’re our friends and neighbors,” Matthew Wesaw, Tribal Council chairman of the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi, said after a ribbon cutting ceremony Monday at the new clinic.
