We would like to thank Tony Grondin for harvesting the tobacco from our Sculpture Park! Another great traditional day of the Anishinaabeg.
This Friday at 6pm, at the Museum of Ojibwa Culture, (corner of Marquette and N. State) come and enjoy the cultural teachings and Medicine Pouch workshop of Francie Wyers on our historical grounds. She will show you how to make your own Native medicine pouch and teach you about the four sacred medicines. Its free to the public.
The city-operated museum and park portray a vivid picture of life in the Straits of Mackinac over 300 years ago when Ojibwa, Huron, Odawa and French lifestyles met at this protected bay. Museum exhibits show Ojibwa Indian culture and traditions, the French contact period and the site's rich archaeology. Outdoor exhibits and a long house explain Huron life here and you are invited to pay your respects at the burial site of Father Jacques Marquette, explorer and Jesuit priest who founded St. Ignace.
