The Anishinabe Learning, Cultural & Wellness Center is located 1.5 miles North of Belcourt on BIA # 7.The Center is a beautiful and symbolically powerful site nestled between Belcourt Lake to the North and a natural wooded area. The Center consists of 102.5 acres of spectacular natural beauty & ponds, with OX Creek running through the area.

The Anishinabe Center has several log cabins, a straw bale research center, a cultural round house, a trading post, medicine wheel garden, sauna, showers , bathrooms, an experimental demonstration site, gardens, nature trails, cultural & medicinal plots, hundreds of fruit & berry trees, a hoop house, lakeshore frontage with docks and a boat & a canoe cabin. In addition, a newly renovated log-sided main building and an education/extension addition is available for staff, students, faculty, and community members for teaching and pleasure.

The small aspen and birch hills that texture the Turtle Mountain landscape will be used for natural resources, ecology, cultural and health related education. The Anishinabe Center will provide a place to collect conversations, observations, hands-on experiences, in a natural outdoor setting. The Center will provide a unique environment to a continuum of related topics such as water, ecology, native plants, agricultural related disciplines, environmental science, and the Anishinabe tribal culture.
