Many Faces is a collaboration of organizations from the greater White Bear Lake Area that looks to build community by providing opportunities to listen, learn, reflect, and engage in conversations on equity, diversity, and inclusion; to explore our history and acknowledge our changing demographics; to gain insight into the experiences and perspectives of our neighbors; and to better understand the role we each play in creating a more welcoming and inclusive community.
The historical society recommends starting with the “Many Faces of the White Bear Lake Area” e-book. Written by Debra C. Barnes and Sara Markoe Hanson, this 39 page book walks you through the history of the area dating back to when Ojibwe, orAnishinaabe migrated here from Lake Superior’s south shore.
