About this place

Onamia received its name from Lake Onamia, which in Ojibwe means “dancing ground.” The dance symbolizes either petition or thanksgiving. The city of Onamia is located where early American Indians performed these dances. Today, Onamia is the area's largest city, housing the Mille Lacs Health System, some light industry and many small, locally owned businesses.
