The history of north central Minnesota is rich and deep with the area first inhabited by the Dakota people, and then by the Ojibwe. This all day tour at the 2014 AASLH Annual Meeting will explore lands connected to thousands of years of human habitation.
Start your day at Mille Lacs Kathio State Park, the site of ongoing archaeology studies and interpretive trails. It’s 9,000 years of human history and archaeological significance has made it a National Historic Landmark.
Then travel to the Mille Lacs Indian Museum and Trading Post and learn the story of the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe.
Finally, end your day with a stop at the historic trading post where you can take home hand-made Indian items from the land and around the country.
