Our Mission

Growing Arts Entrepreneurs 


Gizhiigin Arts Incubator serves artists living on the White Earth Ojibwe Reservation. We help artists reach their marketplace goals by providing space, resources, and technical assistance for their entrepreneurial development.

Gizhiigin Arts Incubator is a project of the White Earth Reservation Tribal Council’s Economic Development Division. Gizhiigin, which means “grow fast” in Anishinaabemowin, opened officially January 30th, 2015.

Gizhiigin is focused on achieving 3 major outcomes:

  • Artistic and economic growth for our artists
  • Creation of an arts destination to promote the economic growth of White Earth
  • Cultural revitalization, vitality, and community pride
