Birch Bark Canoe Workshop
Have you ever seen a birch bark canoe being built? Check out the upcoming Language Immersion & Canoe (Jiimaan) Building Project being held from 08 – 28 June at the Fond du Lac Reservation Cultural Museum. A team of master bark canoe builders and Ojibwe language experts will guide 8 students through the harvest of materials and creation of a birch bark canoe, a process that takes around 3 weeks. The daily workshops are open to the public and those interested can attend for as little or as much time as desired. The FDL Cultural Museum is located at the intersection of Big Lake Road and University Road off of Hwy 33 in Cloquet. Canoe building activities will occur outside under the wigwam. For information contact the Museum at 218.878.7582.
