vacation research is the best kind of all

We're going to be spending next week at the Guyot (in-law's in-laws) family cabin on Lake Superior near Sault Saint Marie so I've been looking up all I can find about the area sight-seeing-wise and history-wise. Wikipedia is what I'm loving for this job (there is enough water in Lake Superior to cover all of North AND South America with a foot of water! Wow!) plus Hunt's Guide to Michigan's Upper Peninsula. It's very candid and plain spoken with lines like, "And that's not all that this flat, mainly swampy part of the eastern U.P. offers."

I've been looking around online for info about Ojibwe culture and history from that region and have found a few things, but only enough to give me a taste for more. Who's got a link for me?

as far as Ojibwe related links, I'm addicted to the radio show Speaking of Faith, and they recently had a show on Ojibwe language (though I haven't listened to it yet). Every show is fascinating, so I'm sure you'd love it (while you're at it, check out some of the others!).

Here's the link:

That's exciting!

This is a little far I imagine, but there are some native Baha'is who run a recreated Ojibwe village in Lac de Flambeau, WI. The link is http://www.waswagoning.org/

I'm sure they'd be happy to link you up with some more info!
