About Migiziwaadiswan

Ojibwe Cultural Learning Center

Nimaamaa-aki, Ojibwe for Mother Earth is what Migiziwaadiswan, (Eagles nest) teachings and healing principles are guided by. Humans’ earthly form mirror Mother Earth, the blood is the water, veins are the rivers and flesh are the woods and plants. Ancestors’ stories tell the history, their teachings guide us through the world, and we look forward to the spiritual journey where we unite with the ancestors. At Migiziwaadiswan, you can learn about Ainshinabe history, learn about the journey, experience Ojibwe ceremony, sing songs together, and gather with us to heal and learn, the Anishinabe Way.

Migiziwaadiswan's grand opening celebration was on August 14, 2022. The Ojibwe Cultural Learning Center is located off of Highway 73, north of Cromwell.
