Odaawe Gamik gift shop at Eyaawing Museum in Peshawbestown

The Traverse City Record-Eagle reports that:

Odaawe Gamik, the gift shop at the new Eyaawing Museum and Cultural Center in Peshawbestown, is now open. The shop is stuffed with the work of artists from the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians and other local Indian artisans.

…”Odaawe Gamik” melds the word “Odawa,” meaning “trader,” with “Gamik,” meaning “this place.”

The store features traditional and contemporary works, including black ash baskets, bead and quill jewelry, Petoskey and native stone jewelry, dream catchers, prints, birch bark mirrors and herbal soaps and lotions.

The store is located across from the Leelanau Sands Casino and you can call 534-7764 for info.

The artwork is called Leelanau Dancing by Leelanau native artist Lois Beardslee and you can check out a great article that Jim Rink wrote titled Lois Beardslee: Daughter of the Earth in the Northern Michigan Journal.
