The Native American Festival is an event hosted by the museum to introduce everyone to the Native American culture of the Ojibwa. The day is filled with activities, demonstrations and music.
Demonstrations include but are not limited to basket making, porcupine quill art and traditional skills.
A grand entry parade, traditional dancers and Metis dancers perform for much of the afternoon and certain dances are open to anyone. The dancers include local tribal members also well as tribal guests from Ontario. Native foods and authentic goods are also available as the events last for the entire day.
We provide both indoor and outdoor exhibits that allow you a glimpse into the Ojibwa culture and the lifestyles of the Huron. This is also where the French Jesuit Mission was located where Father Marquette resided and is the final resting place for Father Jacques Marquette.
