Known as the gateway to the International Peace Gardens, Dunseith is located in the foothills of the beautiful Turtle Mountains, less than 20 miles from the Canadian border. Dunseith has a golf course, a tribal art gallery, shopping facilities and a motel. Tourists love to stop and take pictures of Dunseith's "Wheel Turtle," a giant piece of folk art made from 2,000 steel wheel rims.
Many of Dunseith's 731 residents are members of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa. About 13,000 of the tribe's members live on or near the reservation, which includes the town of Belcourt, a 15-minute drive from Dunseith.
The tribe operates several enterprises, including Turtle Mountain Manufacturing, Uniband Data Processing and Sky Dancer Hotel and Casino, which employs more than 1,000 people.
Dunseith is 32 miles north of Rugby
