Keshena – Menominee Indian Reservation

Menominee Reservation in Keshena

Keshena is the county seat of Menominee County in central Wisconsin.  This building is part of the  College of Menominee Nation, an annex is located in Green Bay.  Keshena is located on the Menominee Indian Reservation.   A historical marker is also here.

We were only here for dinner that evening due to the inclement weather. We ate at the War Bonnet Bar and Grill.  We are both interested in Indian cultures and also enjoy the native foods.  They have fry bread there which was delicious.  I had learned to make it myself as well. Hours open are below.

 Spacious inside, plenty of room for your group!

 In the back is a gift shop selling handmade gifts by members of the Menominee Tribe.

 We placed our order, beginning with an appetizer. A local person in Shawano recommended the Bonnet Bites, fry bread dough balls with a variety of dipping sauces. Yum!

For dinner I had the Indian Taco and Al had a burger on fry bread.

A wonderful meal and friendly atmosphere. Also great service!

We had planned a night photo shoot of the Milky Way over Pine Lake but it never happened. The skies were heavily clouded.  It is really dark there. We plan on going back Spring 2017 to try again, they liked the photo idea for their website 🙂
