DescriptionLac du Flambeau literally means “lake of the torch.” The name was given to this area by French fur traders who saw the Ojibwe fishing at night with torches. The town is home to the Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians. Within the surrounding reservation's borders are more than 250 lakes and 71 miles of rivers and streams, giving visitors many options to enjoy the area's natural beauty. Powwow's are held throughout the summer.
