Museum of Ojibwa Culture

The Museum of the Ojibwa Culture in St Ignace, Michigan was established at Marquette Mission Park. The location speaks eloquently of the interplay between the Ojibwa peoples and the French missionaries/explorers/fur traders here on the Straits of Mackinac. The museum’s emphasis is on the portrayal of the Ojibwa and their way of life, the importance of family and reverence for the land that supplied their needs. Yes, the museum addressed the clash of cultures yet we both experienced a sense of gentleness and peacefulness here. We come away with a little more understanding.
