Teaching Lodge Completed

A few weeks ago a group of Sokaogon Chippewa Tribal Members opened a teaching lodge near Mole Lake.

“This is the lodge that we built; the design was meant for a couple of purposes,” said Wayne Labine. “We used these for fasting lodges; we used them for sweat lodges; we used them for cultural lodges,” he added. Wayne Labine, the education director, says having a place where kids can have fun as well as learn about the past is critical.
