The Turtle Mountain Chippewa community is a vibrant multi-cultural community that includes traditions from the Ojibwe (Anishinaabe) people and the Metis/Cree people to create a culture that is both unique and beautifully colorful and vibrant.
The Mission of the Turtle Mountain Chippewa Indian Heritage Center is to preserve, promote, and apprise the history, culture, and language of the Tribe in order to promote wellness within the community and surrounding communities by educating the public - especially the youth - of the beautiful, health, holistic, diverse and living cultures here, and how this can be used to benefit the lives of community members now, and in the generations to come.
The purpose of the center is to preserve the written documents and artifacts of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa, and to make historical materials available for use by the Turtle Mountain people and others who desire to learn more about the Tribe and its unique cultural heritage.
The Turtle Mountain Indian Historical Society and Heritage Center was established in 1981 with a constitution and by-laws as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
