The presentation will tell the story of Native American history in the Boundary Waters, based on what we’ve learned from the all-too-fragmentary archaeological record of Native American groups living in and around the region from the end of the last Ice Age to European contact. There will be time for discussion, and there will be refreshments.

Bill Clayton has worked for the past 14 years as a conservation archaeologist and historic preservation specialist for the Superior National Forest. He is currently the archaeologist and resource program manager for Grand Portage National Monument. He has a B.A and M.A. in anthropology from the University of Minnesota.
