Celebrate Ojibwe culture with special programs, demonstrations and exhibits. The event is a commemoration of the Treaty of 1854, signed at La Pointe. This important treaty established the first Ojibwe reservations in Wisconsin and stipulated the rights of the Ojibwe to hunt, gather and fish in the ceded territories in perpetuity. The event will feature Ojibwe music and art demonstrations, an exhibit on Ojibwe treaty rights (from the Great Lakes Indian Fish and Wildlife Commission), and screenings of "Mikwendaagoziwag" ("They Are Remembered"), a film about the Sandy Lake Tragedy and 1854 treaty. Sunday will be the museum's annual open house, with admission by donation.
