The Illinois Society was reorganized on 3 November 2011 by State Governor Shari Kelley Worrell.
We meet three times each year in various locations around Illinois.
Membership is open to women aged 16 and above who are the lineal descendants of a Native or immigrant American ancestor who participated in any capacity in actual hostilities, one against the other, or in any other activity with each other, during the period May 14, 1607 to 1900.
Examples of acceptable service include: participation in an indian war or uprising (as an indian or settler), serving as an interpreter or missionary, or trading with the indians.
We support the Continental Society Daughters of Indian Wars with their chosen charity - providing scholarships to Native American students.
