Grand Portage National Monument and Pow-Wow Grounds

The National Park Service and the Grand Portage Band of Chippewa once again will collaborate in hosting the Grand Portage National Monument Rendezvous Days and traditional Pow-Wow, Friday through Sunday, August 7-9. Admission is free to the National Monument Heritage Center and the stockade, reconstructed buildings, and historic "re-enactor" encampment, as well as the pow-wow grounds. A variety of traditional and historic presentations, contests, and workshops are offered at the monument by NPS staff and volunteers. Workshops are limited in size and are offered to the public on a first-come, first-served basis. Visitors are encouraged to interact with participants in the re-enactor encampment to learn about the history of the fur trade in Grand Portage. The traditional Pow-Wow hosts ceremonial dances, which all are invited to watch. Vendors offer a selection of arts, crafts, and Native American food. More information is available from the monument office at 218-475-0123.
