A beautiful, handmade birch bark canoe is on display now through December at Madison Children’s Museum. Walk through the MCM doors and look up to see this Ojibwe masterpiece. The creation of the canoe was lead by Wayne Valliere (Mino-giizhig in Ojibwe), of the Lac du Flambeau band of Lake Superior Chippewa.
