Archived: Arts & Culture Feature: Mille Lacs Indian Museum & Trading Post

On Thursday’s (1/21) Newswatch feature at 12:30 p.m. KVSC’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Producer Jeff Carmack presents a feature on the Mille Lacs Indian Museum and Trading Post north of Onamia. This Minnesota Historical Society site is a focal point of Ojibwe culture in Minnesota and has been in existence for nearly 100 years.  The museum and trading post offers many workshops and continues to be a meeting place between the Ojibwe and Minnesotans. 

We will also hear from Tribal Elders regarding the preservation of ancient Ojibwe culture, issues and successes on the reservation, and the tribe’s role in today’s modern world. This report is produced with support from the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund and will be posted on our features podcast page after airing on Thursday’s Newswatch feature at 12:30 p.m.
