Learn the traditional ways of the Ojibwe in early Minnesota. They moved seasonally to follow food and resources to live straight from nature. This dramatically different way of life helps us compare our modern lifestyles and impact upon the environment. This program can also include fur trade history by addressing the Europeans who came for work and exploration. Fur trade presentations include manufactured goods such as kettles, blankets and fire starters that traders brought from around the world. We explore this global business that influenced both white and native cultures. While I am not American Indian, it is important to learn about the many cultures that shape Minnesota’s past and present.
