Bounded by Canada on the north and North Dakota on the west, the Northwest Region is home to beautiful natural areas, mighty rivers – including the Mississippi and the Red River – and expansive farmland. It also is the site of a number of Ojibwe Indian reservations, including White Earth, Red Lake, and Leech Lake. The largest city in the region is Bemidji, which is home to Bemidji State University and Northwestern Technical College.
