MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A state museum on Wisconsin's far northern tip is planning to honor Anishinaabe culture.
Madeline Island Museum in La Pointe will host Anishinaabe Cultural Days on Sept. 27 and Sept. 28. The event is designed to commemorate the Treaty of 1854, which was signed in La Pointe and established the first Anishinaabe reservations in Wisconsin and stipulated tribal members' right to hunt, gather and fish in the so-called ceded territory, a huge swath of northern Wisconsin the tribes handed over to the federal government.
The event will feature Anishinaabe music and art demonstrations, a treaty rights exhibit and films.
The Anishinnaabe are also known as the Ojibewe or the Chippewa.
