Traditional Native American Teachings and St. Ignace History Teachings

  • Monday and Tuesday evenings from 6:30 to 7:00 come and learn about the traditional ways of the Ojibwa people and how those teachings are still carried on today. Frances Wyers, Museum Cultural Director and a Member of the Sault Tribe of Chippewa Indians will present these rich cultural teachings. Handouts of segments of the teachings will be available.
  • Mondays and Tuesday evenings from 7:00 to 7:30, come and learn about the history of our area as Tom Wyers, Museum Assistant Manager, will share and engage our audience as he shares about the history of St. Ignace and the significance of history as it happened on the site of the Marquette Mission Park.  Each person attending will be given a free copy of the St. Ignace Walking Tour, a 40-page booklet that walks locals and visitors through a self-guided tour through downtown St. Ignace and its waterfront boardwalk. The booklet explores stories about the tribes that inhabited the area and the settlers of the 17th and 18th centuries and showcases our rich history. This free booklet is complimentary from the Michilimakinac Historical Society.
