'A Grand Heart Place' Duluth poised to rename downtown park in Ojibwe language


December 10, 2018

Less than a year after Minneapolis' Lake Calhoun was renamed Bde Maka Ska, which means White Earth Lake in the Dakota language, the city of Duluth is on the cusp of renaming a downtown park in the Ojibwe language.

The Duluth City Council is scheduled to vote on a resolution Monday to change the name of Lake Place Park to Gichi-ode' Akiing, which means A Grand Heart Place in the Ojibwe language. The park sits across a tunnel over I-35, stretching from the edge of downtown to the Lakewalk and includes a stretch of Lake Superior shoreline.
