NATIVE AMERICAN HERITAGE DAY AT THE DEPOT

Celebrating Ojibwe history and culture

Duluth, MN, November 24, 2018–The St. Louis County Historical Society, in partnership with the Depot Foundation, the 1854 Treaty Authority, Bois Forte Tribal Council, and the Historic Union Depot Corporation, presents Native American Heritage Day. November is nationally recognized as Native American Heritage Month and this event will seek to celebrate local Ojibwe history, art, and culture.

The event will include food by B&B Market, light refreshments, music by Burntside Lake, children’s activities, as well as artwork by Carl Gawboy. The Lake Superior Ojibwe Gallery will also be unveiling its ‘Storyteller’s Corner’ which showcases a museum-safe, yet realistic, wigwam as an interactive experience for children. Also premiering will be the Society’s Hill of Three Waters mural which is located in the Small Fesler Gallery.

The event will take place in the Great Hall of the St. Louis County Heritage & Arts Center—located in the Depot—at 506 W. Michigan Street. The event will run from 11am to 3pm.

This event is free and open to the public. It is suitable for all ages. Also make sure to check out events happening in the railroad museum!
