    Walk back in time to when the Ojibwe built wigwams and moved from area to area as the seasons changed, making articles for survival out of natural elements found in northern Wisconsin. Join a walking tour for an hour or more through a "Traditional Indian Village" depicting a way of life that honored the seasons, the earth and natural resources. Wa-Swa-goning is the only village of it's kind in the Northwoods, and it is a unique learning experience for the entire family.
