Hi,new to the site and was not able to find a section for plant identification. I came across this berry plant in a nature walk and thought it looked interesting. Anyone have any thoughts on what it may be?

Southeast Michigan, if that narrows it down at all. Let me know if more pics would help.

Looks like that to me also.
The Iriquois used the plant medicinally.
