I was advised by a local resident to call and book an appointment to visit the centre. I booked for 3pm a few days in advance and left my name and cell number. We arrived at 245pm. The doors were locked. A woman, who clearly worked there, came to the doors, stared and myself and my elderly mother who uses a cane, then continued walking. i knocked on the doors and was ignored. I called the centre and there was no answer. Very disappointing and rude treatment.

We came here after going to the Church across the street. The lecturers were amazing and were part of the Ojibwe Community. In the us it would be a Reservation and referred to as Native Americans, in Canada it is different, they are referred to as members of the First Nation. We also had a story told to us by First Nation dancers. It was quite enjoyable and informative. Plan on spending a couple of hours there to fully appreciate the artifacts, informative lectures and demonstrations.

We were there for about a half hour to see some of the artifacts from present generation of native peoples. You get to understand some of the injustices carried out against the first nations peoples. Presently this Foundation place serves as a place where adults and children from natives communities can learn crafts from their ancestors. I think it is worth a visit. Entry is free but you can make a donation at the provided donation box.

Really gives you a feel for the Native American culture on the island. I didn't realize the struggles the families dealth with for a span of over 100 years. The government wanted them to become Canadian citizens and leave behind their Native American customs and language. Interesting art along with a chance to make a beaded project. You can also watch them working on projects during you visit. Well worth a visit.

The current exhibit tells how the art of making the porcpin quill boxes. And there is a well researched amount of information about the Clan names at our many Nations.
The healing lodge shows how the 4 healing herbs and used and explains the 7 teachings. In a large workroom you can watch people doing beadwork inlcuding young people who are learning the traditional crafts. And did you know the procupine quills come from roadkill?.
The Gift Shop has a good selection of books for children

If you are interested in any way, shape or form in native culture than this is a most stop when on the island. If you feel so inclined, there's a lady there that will even show you how to make native crafts.

My wife and I enjoyed our guided visit to the Ojibwe Cultural Foundation and their art galleries and state-of-the-art exhibits of their heritage museum, their Foundation’s artisan shop and participate in a smudging ceremony.
