Indian Graveyard on Madeline Island

One of the many interesting landmarks on Madeline Island, is the old Indian graveyard, where the burial sites are covered and protected by roofed shelters, and surrounded by tiny weathered picket fences. A bronze tablet marks the site of Treaty Hall, where the peace pact between the Ojibways and the United States was finally signed.
