    Host: Mille Lacs Indian Museum, Minnesota Historical Society

    Don't pass up this chance to connect with Minnesota’s water stories! This exhibit is kid and family friendly.

    We Are Water MN is a partnership created to collaboratively share Minnesota’s water stories, visiting different communities for 6 weeks at a time. Each local host community will use this traveling exhibit to help tell their local water stories: the history; sacredness to Minnesota’s first people, the Dakota and Ojibwe; current stresses on water; and how water affects every element of life.

    You'll also experience events and programs designed to explore and celebrate local waterways, stories from community members about water, and facts about water health in each region.

    Special events, like speaker series, community book reads, recreation outings, and concerts, will be listed on the website.
