The Grand Portage Band of Ojibwe share their land at Minnesota's newest state park, Grand Portage State Park. The desire for a safe approach to the 120-foot High Falls of the Pigeon River brought about this unique cooperative effort between the state and the Band. This is the only park in the nation that is managed in partnership with a local Indian band. The result is access for everyone to one of the area's most impressive natural features.
