The Eyaawing (a-yah-wing) Museum and Cultural Center shares the history and culture of the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians. Located in Peshawbestown, Michigan, near Traverse City, Eyaawing welcomes all school groups to visit or take a tour. There are also arts-and-crafts projects, which include lessons about Native-American culture. Kids always enjoy learning about the Seven Grandfather Teachings, canoes, and the medicine wheel. They can also make memory bracelets to take home. For more information, go to gtbindians.org/eyaawing.asp.
