Lac Courte Oreilles Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians of Wisconsin
Log Number: MN-249637-OMS-21
The Lac Courte Oreilles (LCO) Museum and Visitors Center will partner with the LCO Ojibwe College to develop and install exhibits at the museum and four other locations on the reservation with the common theme of “Ikwe–The Women of LCO.” The exhibits will focus on seven areas in which LCO Ikwe have excelled: traditional arts, public media, education, community health, military service, social action, and those who raised large families. Photos and other documents used in the exhibits will come from the LCO Museum and the LCO Ojibwe College, in addition to several historical repositories in the region. Five tribal elders will assist in gathering information from families in the community about previous generations of Ikwe in addition to serving as docents upon the opening of the exhibits.
