About this activity

The Mille Lacs Indian Museum & Trading Post offers a detailed look into the history and culture of the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe, an Indigenous woodland people. We have lots of activities for children, such as teaching kids how to do loom beadwork, puzzles, play an Ojibwe game, watch a video, do a scavenger hunt or an exhibit hall quiz, interact with monitors in the exhibit hall, such as, our Ojibwe language monitor and last but not least the Four Seasons room, which is a life sized diorama showing traditional way of life for the Ojibwe in the late 1700's to early 1800's. For additional cost, we offer crafts for kids such as bead a ring, make a dream catcher, a God’s Eye, a cornhusk doll or decorate an Ojibwe shoulder bag. We also have some information kiosks outside on the museum grounds.
