Get Involved


Our success is made possible, in part, by the support we receive through our strong relationships with you, our donors. Your generosity ensures that we will continue to inspire, educate and remain the premier destination of choice for exploring our history.


Volunteers are the building blocks of our Museum. All our activities and programs depend on the assistance of dedicated volunteers.

Activity 1: Map Study

Map Links:

Whose land is your land?

1. Based on the different maps available, when did the place you live transfer from Aniishinaabe control?
2. Think geographically/graphically: represent the time that your land was home to Aniishinaabe peoples and since.

Who is reflected in these place names? Who is erased?

1. What has your town been called before? Who does your town/area’s name represent?
2. Does your town/area have a past Anishinaabemowin name? If not, what might it have been called?
