The Eyaawing (pronounced a-yah-wing) Museum & Cultural Center, located in Peshawbestown, Michigan, was created by the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians to establish and maintain a record of the history of the Grand Traverse Band of Anishinaabek. This space shows a great respect for the circle of life, honors tribal families, and tells a story of true heritage. It was built to promote the Tribe’s belief that culture, language, and spirit of the Grand Traverse Band shall be recognized, perpetuated, communicated supported, and shared with the people of all nations.
Inhabitect is honored to have been selected to plant this sacred garden at the museum. This space was designed by a tribal member and includes a long list of rare indigenous plants intended to be used as food, medicine, and within ceremonies. This includes herbs, nuts, berries, grasses, flowers, and many other useful plants. These sacred elements will be used to educate its visitors for generations.
