Protecting Native Artisanship

View over the water at the jagged shore of Pictured Rocks
Visitors can experience Anishinabe culture and artisanship at Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore.

An Impact Grant allowed the Lakeshore to engage a professional Anishinabe Native American birch bark canoe builder to perform weekend demonstrations engaging visitors in this traditional tribal craft.

The canoe is also used to share with students throughout the school year as they too learn about similar stories and traditions.
