Eyaawing Museum & Cultural Center serves both members of the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians and the larger community. It is a place where the traditions, language, and art of the Tribe are kept, taught and celebrated. It also provides a portal to Tribe for the community — a place where the public is welcome to learn about the culture and history of the Grand Traverse Band and the people of the area.

Eyaawing (pronounced a-ya-wing) means “Who we are” in Anishinaabemowin, the traditional language of Michigan’s Native people.

Peshawbestown is on scenic M-22 between Suttons Bay and Omena, about 30-35 minutes from Traverse City.
