Miikanan Gallery

Watermark’s Miikanan Gallery is a permanent space to exhibit and promote Indigenous art in the region. It exhibits a variety of traditional and contemporary artwork created by Native American artists, providing ongoing exhibitions, retail opportunities and educational events for the region.

The name Miikanan, meaning ‘many paths’, reflects the physical location and historical importance of the region to Ojibwe people. Bemidji is located in the center of three reservations – Red Lake, Leech Lake and White Earth – making it the ideal location for a spot dedicated to Indigenous art activities.
