Introduction to Walking the Old Road: A People’s History of Chippewa City and the Grand Marais Anishinaabe

November 12th


Cost: $20*

Scholarship Available Reducing Price by 100%, enter the following code at checkout*: scholarship100

Join Staci for an introduction to the Walking the Old Road. Staci will talk through the various themes that are in the book and give participants a few questions for them to consider as they are reading.

Walking the Old Road revisits a time when generations of Ojibwe ancestors called the lost community of Chippewa City home. Staci Lola Drouillard, whose family once lived in Chippewa City, draws on memories, family history, historical analysis, and testimony passed down through generations to conduct us through the ages of early European contact, government land allotment, family relocation, and assimilation.

Walking the Old Road was a 2020 MN Book Award Finalist, a 2020-21 NE MN Book Award Nominee, and the winner of the Hamlin Garland Prize for Popular History in the Midwest, 2020.

We encourage you to attend the Now & Then Presentation & Discussion of Walking the Old Road on December 10th from 6:30pm-8pm with Staci Drouillard. She will present some history and color photos from the book, touch upon how the story has impacted our community, answer questions, and facilitate discussion among attendees.
