Boozhoo (hello)! This section of the website is devoted to
helping you explore the heritage of Red Cliff.
The Red Cliff
Reservation was created through a series of treaties between the U.S.

Cliff Band), the most recent being the treaty of 1854. The reservation is
approximately one mile wide and 14 miles long, located at the top of the
Bayfield Peninsula, on the shores of Lake Superior in northern Wisconsin.
The village of Red Cliff, the location of tribal offices and businesses, is
three miles north of Bayfield Wisconsin, a popular tourist community
adjacent to the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore.
