At the turn of the nineteenth century, one mile east of Grand Marais, Minnesota, you would have found Chippewa City, a village that as many as 200 Anishinnabe families called home. Today you will find only Highway 61, private lakeshore property, and the one remaining village building; St. Francis Xavier Church. In Walking the Old Road: A People's History of Chippewa City and the Grand Marais Anishinaabe, the author Staci Lola Drouillard walks you through the story of that lost community, reclaiming for history the Ojibwe voices that have for so long, and so unceremoniously, been silenced.
