The Band has inhabited the Lac du Flambeau area since 1745 when Chief Keeshkemun led the Band to the area. The Band acquired the name Lac du Flambeau from its gathering practice of harvesting fish at night by torchlight. The name Lac du Flambeau, or Lake of the Torches, refers to this practice and was given to the Band by the French traders and trappers who visited the area.

The Lac du Flambeau Reservation was officially established by treaties in 1837 and 1842. The area was continually logged in the following years and became a tourist destination for families from southern Wisconsin and Illinois around the turn of the century. Read More....

Boy Dorm Grand Opening and Open House

Join the Tribal Historic Preservation Office as we celebrate the Legacy of Survival:  Boys Dormitory Restoration.

Thursday, September 25th from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.

We have come full circle!  We welcome your presence in celebrating the restoration of the Boys Dormitory, a remnant of the Government Board School that attempted, and nearly succeeded, in eradicating our culture and language.  This building is now the home of the programs which are working tirelessly to restore our heritage.

A Legacy of Survival is more than an effort to educate.  It is a movement towards healing and declaring that our people are survivors of the Boarding School era.

The ceremony will begin at 10:00 am and will include a special dedication of the Research Room.  Refreshments will be provided.  The Open House will be held until 3:00 pm.  Tour the facility, meet the staff, and celebrate the renovations to this historic property.  Click here for a sneak peak at the renovations.
