The Eyaawing Museum and Cultural Center in Peshawbestown, MI hosts its Third Annual Holiday Bazaar on Saturday, December 7, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event is open to all vendors and shoppers.

Look for sales booths featuring Anishinaabek art, crafts and food from throughout the Great Lakes region. Surprises for the children include "Make and Take" projects and a chance to have a photo with Santa (between 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for $2).

As a bonus, Holiday Bazaar visitors can enjoy the backdrop of the Eyaawing educational exhibits, such as original paintings, family photographs and a wigwas jimaan (birch bark canoe), to name a few.

If a visit to the various vendor booths is not enough, explore Odaawa Gamik (Museum Store). Here, more items from Tribal artists and craftspeople are available, as well as clothing, educational materials, incense, maps and music for adults and children.

According to the website, the Eyaawing (Who we are) Museum and Cultural Center was created to "Establish, gather, interpret and maintain a record of the history of the Grand Traverse Band of Anishinaabek with respect for the circle of life, honor for our families and the telling of our true heritage."

See you Saturday (Gawaabamin giziibiigisaginige-giizhigad) and please bring a non-perishable food item for the community pantry.
