Moments in Time: Anishinaabe & Isle Royale

FinalCut_MIT_Anishinaabe_20110926.mp315.65 MB

In its early days, before Isle Royale became a national park in 1940, the island was home to loggers, miners and fishermen. Most were Scandinavian immigrants. However, there are people whose ties to the island go much farther back, and their story is often overlooked. In this edition of Moments in Time, we look at the story of the Anishinaabe and their connection to the island. They have a different set of uses for the land, and a different name for it.
