Hello Legacy fans. Browser here.
Our wonderful state of Minnesota in conjunction with Kitchigami Regional Library is once again bringing you a program you won’t want to miss. “What is the subject this time?” you ask. “Ojibwe in Minnesota” published by Minnesota Historical Society Press.

I’ve always wondered about the Ojibwe people. Many of their ancestors still live in our area.

Our streets and lakes are named with words from their language.

Who are these people? Find out Monday May 24th at 6:30PM at the Life Center on Barclay Ave in Pine River.

The author, Anton Treuer, has been studying and writing about the Ojibwe people for many years. Here is his educational background in Minnesota:

Education: University of Minnesota
Ph.D. : History, September 1997
Dissertation: The Assassination of Hole in the Day
M.A. : History, July 1994
Thesis: Ojibwe-Dakota Relations:Diplomacy, War and Social Union, 1679-1862
GPA: 4.0/4.0

We are told that this man of letters is a very good speaker. His topic is pertinent to us all. I think you would be cheating yourself if you did not attend. It’s a question of knowing your neighbors!
