In 2009, Northwoods NiiJii Enterprise Community Inc. was awarded a three-year USDA-Rural Business Economic Development Grant to implement a Native Arts Initiative through the Woodland Indian Art Center located in Lac du Flambeau, Wisconsin.
The Woodland Indian Art Center is home to a gallery featuring artwork from Native American artists from across the Woodland region. Traditional and contemporary artwork including beaded work, carvings, birch bark baskets, jewelry, paintings, and more are for sale. The Art Center offers classes, workshops, demonstrations, and a full range of Native artistic programming. The Art Center also works with musicians, writers, dancers, and other contemporary Native Artists. The Art Center also assists Native artists with entrepreneurial skill development, leadership training, financial literacy, technical assistance, mentoring, e-commerce, sales and marketing, and networking.
While a substantial percentage of Tribal members self-identify as artisans and engage in making Native Woodland arts and crafts, only about 2% of the total population are currently employed or making a living through their art. Tribal members worked with Northwoods NiiJii to identify the need for entrepreneurial training and investment in preserving and capitalizing on the Native arts and cultural assets of the community as a way toward achieving self-sufficiency and economic sustainability. The RBEG grant award lays the foundation for Northwoods NiiJii to develop future cultural capacity-building grants for Native arts and culture initiatives.

A Northwoods tradition since 1951. In the summers, along the shore of Long Interlaken Lake, the Lac du Flambeau Band of Ojibwe gather to celebrate life, to dance and sing, and to laugh and remember. We invite you to join in our celebration, to share our culture and learn of our rich history. Our hope is that as the sun sets you will say, “Waswaaganing Indizhaa!” (I’m going to Lac du Flambeau.)
The Lac du Flambeau Fish Hatchery was established in 1936. It is located on Pokegema Lake on Highway 47. The emphasis is on raising walleye and musky to stock in reservation lakes that are open for public fishing. Both lake and well water is used to control temperatures for year round production.
Fish eggs are harvested from local lakes and hatched in incubators. Some of the fry hatched are put back into area lakes and some are raised to fingerling size and then released. The fish culture program raises all fish necessary for stocking reservation waters. Since 1960 the hatchery has raised nearly 600 million walleye fry, three million walleye fingerlings, two and a half million muskellunge fry and just over one hundred and twenty-five thousand muskellunge fingerlings.
The original structure was recently replaced with a new state-of-the-art facility that doubles fish production.
