Odanah, Minnesota


Located in far northern Wisconsin, just south of Lake Superior, is Bad River Reservation's CDP (census designated place) of Odanah which also goes by New Odanah. Below are several links to google earth photos of Bad River Reservation's CDP settlement of Odanah, Wisconsin. This Ojibway settlement has a troubled history. A flood in 1960, forced Reservation leaders to relocate many residents of Old Odanah to this New Odanah. They agreed they needed to relocate to higher ground, away from Bad River which is prone to flood now and then. It is not to be confused with the other village with the same name, which is 1.8 miles or 2.9 kilometers to it's northwest. According to 2000's census, Odanah has a population of 254. Odanah has 104 housing units. However, there are more housing units now which means it's population is higher. Elevation is 627 feet above sea level. Zip code is 54861. Native Americans make up 95% of the population. Whites make up 4% of the population.
