Tonight, Monday, July 28, NiiJii, the Indian Bowl Board of Directors, and the Lac du Flambeau Tribe are hosting a benefit event for the new Waaswaaganing Indian Bowl Living Arts and Culture Center. 

The event, Nii Mii Daa (“Let’s Dance” in Ojibwe), will showcase a mural panel that has been created by Tribal Members and Tribal Youth.

A $20,000 grant from the National Endowment of the Arts (NEA) was awarded to Northwoods NiiJii Enterprise Community Inc. to support artist fees and related supplies for the Lac du Flambeau Deep Roots New Growth.

Teresa Mitchell, director of the George W. Brown Ojibwe Cultural Museum, is training Native artists to lead museum tours and present workshops at the Woodland Indian Art Center, as well as work with students in painting a mural for the museum.
