Abstract:

"One of the most vibrant and influential ethnic groups in Michigan, Poles have a long history of migration and settlement in the Great Lakes State. From the earliest Polish marriage in 1762 to the most recent post-Cold War migrations, each successive wave of settlement has enriched and enlivened Michigan culture. Yet, Paczki Day and Polish festivals represent a relatively small portion of the Polish experience. Commitments both to religious and ethnic identity, and a belief in the American vision of land ownership and success, have combined to create a mainstream ethnic community abundant in ethnic pride. Poles' success in Michigan continues to attract Polish immigrants from Europe, just as Polonia continues to make its mark on Michigan's culture."--Jacket.
