Welcome

elcome to Bemidji, capital of Minnesota’s beautiful northwoods. Come see why our unlimited opportunity and outstanding quality of life are no longer a well-kept secret. Bemidji has long earned raves as a four-season destination for world-class hunting, fishing, bicycling, boating, and snow sports amid the beauty of the northwoods. Few visitors can resist a photo with big Paul Bunyan and his blue ox Babe on the shore of Lake Bemidji. But the First City on the Mississippi is also a wonderful place to call home. Just ask the 50,000 folks who live and work in and around this big small town. Surrounded by pristine lakes and deep forests, Bemidji is a family friendly, family community with rich tradition and the right touch of hipness. It has top-tier higher education, outstanding K-12 schools, a major health care center, convenient air service, fine dining, a vibrant arts scene, and the hottest commercial buzz in all of northern Minnesota.

HISTORY OF BEMIDJI

Founded in 1896, Bemidji is the county seat of Beltrami County. The city’s name is derived from the Ojibwe word for the lake, Bemijigamaag, meaning a lake with water (the Mississippi River) flowing through it. In the early 1890s, a settlement grew around Carson Trading Post on the south shore of Lake Bemidji. By 1900, Bemidji had 2,183 inhabitants. Logging, the principal occupation at that time, attracted railroads, and railroad right-of-ways determined the locations of emerging towns. Bemidji has matured into a highly diversified region that continues to grow. For more information, visit beltramihistory.org.

SHAYNOWISHKUNG / CHIEF BEMIDJI

Just a short walk from the Tourist Information Center stands the statue of Shaynowishkung, also known as Chief Bemidji. Born around 1834, this respected leader endured tremendous loss after 1888 when settlers moved to the area. A skilled orator, Shaynowishkung exemplified Anishinaabe values and advocated for peace. His statue and the four plaques that accompany it were constructed to encourage the healing of all people, and the restoration of human dignity.

PAUL BUNYAN AND BABE THE BLUE OX

Folk tales about the adventures of giant lumberjack Paul Bunyan and his companion Babe the Blue Ox circulated in logging camps in the early 20th century before making their way into print as beloved children’s stories. For years, Bemidji has been recognized as the home of Paul and Babe. Constructed in 1937, Bemidji’s statues of Paul and Babe can be found outside the Tourist Information Center. The Paul Bunyan statue is eighteen feet tall and weighs two and a half tons above the footings. Each year, thousands of visitors stop by to be photographed with these historic statues and wave to the webcam. For more information, bemidji.org.

Take a tour or peruse educational resources and a collection of art at the AIRC.

LEECH LAKE BAND OF OJIBWE GAA-ZAGASKWAAJIMEKAAG

The Leech Lake Band Of Ojibwe is one of seven Ojibwe nations in Minnesota and encompasses two of the state’s largest lakes— Leech Lake and Lake Winnibigoshish. The Leech Lake Nation has nearly 8,000 citizens. Eighty-five percent of the Leech Lake Reservation falls within the boundaries of the Chippewa National Forest, and tribal members only own four percent of their own land. Tribal culture remains vibrant at Leech Lake. Many people actively participate in traditional dance, music, art, and ceremonial life. Leech Lake is also home to Minnesota’s first Ojibwe language immersion school, Niigaane.

RED LAKE NATION MISKWAAGAMIIWI-ZAAGA’IGANIING

The Red Lake Nation covers 1,259 square miles in parts of nine counties in northern Minnesota and has over 10,000 tribal citizens. The main reservation is unallotted tribal land, meaning that no individuals own title to it. That land is held in trust for the benefits of all tribal members, making Red Lake unique among all the reservations in Minnesota. The village of Ponemah on the Red Lake Nation is a traditional community that follows tribal religious beliefs and funerary practices. It is home to nearly 400 Ojibwe language speakers.

WHITE EARTH NATION GAA-WAABABIGANIKAAG

With more than 22,000 tribal citizens, White Earth Nation is the most populous reservation in the state. The reservation was established as a relocation designation for Ojibwe people from the Brainerd Lakes region, northwestern Minnesota and Lake Superior. Land and timber speculators successfully swindled most of the land on the reservation out of tribal hands. Even today, tribal members own less than nine percent of their own reservation. Traditional tribal culture eroded significantly due to a variety of assimilation policies, but in the past twenty years, tribal members have achieved amazing revitalization of traditional customs.

THE ARTS

Bemidji celebrates the arts every day in its galleries, shops, streets and concert halls. There are endless opportunities to take in the visual arts. Bemidji is home to a nationally recognized Sculpture Walk throughout the downtown area. The First Friday Art Walk is a monthly event during which many galleries, organizations, businesses, and restaurants host open receptions and exhibits. The Watermark Art Center features local, regional, and national artists and hosts the annual Art in the Park each July on the shores of Lake Bemidji. For three days in October, area artisans open their studios for The Studio Cruise, a behind-the-scenes look at how their work is created. With the Bemidji Community Band, Bemidji Chorale, Bemidji Community Theater, and the Bemidji Symphony Orchestra, visitors can enjoy the performing arts and music throughout the region. Our schools, including Headwaters School of Music and Arts have a long-standing reputation of award-winning performing arts, including band, choir, dance, and theater. We are proud to have three theater companies that offer a myriad of shows for all ages.

HEADWATERS SCIENCE CENTER

Headwaters Science Center provides hours of edutainment for everyone. Voted by the Star Tribune in 2021 as the Best Museum in Minnesota, guests will be sure to find a knowledgeable staff with over 70 interactive exhibits, including live animals like a boa named Rusty! Their science demonstrations and programs cover a wide variety of topics, such as combustion, cryogenics, raptors, insects, and astronomy. HSC exhibits require active participation by the visitor. Some require dexterity and/or creativity, but all result in better understanding and appreciation of scientific principles and concepts. Make sure to hold a snake or a bunny, make a harmonograph picture, watch the kinetic sculpture, and spend a moment contemplating the beauty of our 210-gallon salt water aquarium. Hscbemidji.org


BELTRAMI COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY

FISHING

With some of the deepest, clearest lakes in the state, the Northwoods of Minnesota is the best place for fishing and ice fishing. Great reproduction rates, state fishery stocking efforts, and sensible catch limits make our lakes exciting to fish. Lake Bemidji and surrounding lakes are best known for walleye, bass, perch, northern pike, muskie, crappie, and bluegill. There are designated trout lakes and streams as well as bass and muskie-managed lakes for the serious or casual fisherman.

HUNTING

With the turn of the leaves in the fall, the limitless hunting opportunities take center stage. The forests, lakes and area farmlands provide habitat for deer, partridge, ruffed and sharptail grouse, black bear, duck and geese. The result is hunters taking home plenty of game, memories, and stories. Sportsmen can find some of the best hunting for trophy whitetail deer and black bear. Personal guides are available but should be contacted in advance. Bemidji Trap & Skeet Club, established in 1928, offers a modern clubhouse, five lighted trap fields, wobble trap and opens for the season in May.
