“Why Treaties Matter: Self-Government in the Dakota and Ojibwe Nations""
November 10 - December 15, 2012
"Why Treaties Matter" Self Government in the Dakota and Ojibwe Nations" is a traveling exhibition that helps establish American Indian sovereignty as an ongoing continental reality and provides a vehicle for all Minnesotans to learn new and innovative ways to create community, build sustainable systems, and relate to one another.
This project is funded in part with money from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund that was created with a vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008, and the Patrick and Aimee Butler Family Foundation.

The museum offers visitors the opportunity to view two permanent exhibits, the “Fires of 1918” exhibit and the “Carlton County Logging” exhibit. Currently we also have an exhibit on the Puumala Clinic of Cloquet, a Museum Mysteries Gallery of unidentified photos and portraits we need help identifying and U.S. Military uniforms from the Civil War to Vietnam.
Visitors may also view a historical video of the 1918 forest fire, an interview with Milo Stillwell and Pete Trygg who created the model logging camp exhibit and other videos or use the archives of the CCHS research library. We offer special programs every month to interpret our exhibits. The building is handicapped accessible. For more information call 218-879-1938.
