Walking the Old Road (Staci Lola Drouillard)Staci Lola Drouillard will be at the Minnesota History Center on Tuesday, March 17 at 7:00 p.m. for a reading and signing of her new book, Walking the Old Road: A People's History of Chippewa City and the Grand Marais Anishinaabe, as part of the Minnesota Historical Society's History Lounge series.

 

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.

 

"What a beautiful read! Staci Lola Drouillard’s enchantingly lyrical descriptions of histories and places interweave with the voices of the Chippewa City people past and present like a braid of sweetgrass." —Linda LeGarde Grover, author of In the Night of Memory

 

"Staci Lola Drouillard’s thick descriptions and beautiful photographs offer a rare opportunity to be transported through space and time and connect with Minnesota’s North Shore. History comes alive in Walking the Old Road." —Anton Treuer, author of Everything You Wanted to Know About Indians But Were Afraid to Ask
