Celebrating a heritage that is rich in diversity and creativity, St. Ignace’s Annual Native American Festival promises to be a thrill for the senses on July 24, 2021.
Hear the sounds of drums, see the expressive dances, and taste the traditions that were literally hundreds of years in the making – all at this one incredible event. The smell of sacred medicines and the feel of birch bark, porcupine quills and other materials used for both function and artistry are also part of the experience. The event is held on the grounds of the Museum of Ojibwa Culture and festival activities are free to all visitors.
“Everyone is welcome to come and experience the rich traditions and culture of the Anishinaabe people. It is an honor and a privilege to host this annual event that spotlights an important part of our history through the eyes of the First People who inhabited this area, said Shirley Sorrels, Museum Director. We are proud to recognize the important contribution the Anishinaabe people make to enrich our museum and inform us about the Native American experience of past generations.”
