Ottawa woman to enter Michigan Hall of Fame
Margaret Bailey Chandler, a member of the Little River Band of Ottawa Indians who died in 1997 at the age of 67, will be inducted into the Michigan Women's Hall of Fame.

Chandler's work helped secure federal recognition for her tribe. She served as tribal historian and advocated for treaty and fishing rights.

"She had to fight for what she believed in, and look what she did," granddaughter Valerie Chandler told The Muskegon Chronicle. "She made such a difference in so many people's lives."

The induction ceremony will be held October 21.
