At the turn of the nineteenth century, one mile east of Grand Marais, Minnesota, you would have found Nishkwakwansing (at the edge of the forest) aka Chippewa City, a village that as many as 200 Anishinaabe families called home.

Today you will find only the highway, private lakeshore property, and one remaining village building: St. Francis Xavier Church.

Explore the history of a lost community and the reclaimed voices of the Ojibwe people who built this once-vibrant village with Staci Lola Drouillard, author of the award-winning Walking the Old Road: A People’s History of Chippewa City and the Grand Marais Anishinaabe.

This program is made possible by the Legacy Amendment's Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
