Some displays about Ojibwe culture and a small one about their experiences in the Residential Schools. Most days(maybe Monday-Friday 10-2) there is indigenous craft making. Crafts are free to do, but we made a donation of thanks and support. Today was porcupine quill pendants (thanks to a recent donated road kill). Wonderful paintings for sale. There also a sweat lodge(not sure when it’s used). Beautiful fairly new building.

A very good section portraying life in the residential schools, with both positive and negative views and memories.
A delightful time spent with the instructor in many indigenous arts. Was a wealth of skill and knowledge. Wished I could have stayed longer and taken some of her classes.

Throughout the summer, they change their exhibits so it is worth while visiting at least twice during the summer. Healing Lodge, Museum, Art Gallery and for tour groups, drum and dance presentations.

We were warmly met at the door and made aware of the exhibit spaces after which we were left to explore. The main gallery was rich with recent copper art, bead and hide work, extraordinary bark and quill boxes and a fascinating explanation of clan culture. Currently, there is a small but affecting exhibit on Residential Schools.
