New road signs proclaim the Ojibwe name of Red Cliff | Subscriber

Gaa-Miskwaabikaang – pronounced ga-misk-wa-be-kong – means “The place where there are red rock cliffs”.

It is the Ojibwe word for the area north of Bayfield, home of the Red Cliff Band of Chippewa Indians. It is also the first indication travelers on Highway 13 will have that they have crossed the border into Indian Country.
