Map Monday: Dakota and Ojibwe Map of Minneapolis

Via Nick Magrino on Twitter (I don’t know where he got it), here’s a cool map showing Native American trails and place names superimposed on the existing Minneapolis city boundaries. Indigenous People’s Day (which is the official status of today’s holiday in a few Minnesota cities) is the perfect time to stop and reflect on the thousands of years of history that predate the European arrival and settlement of Minnesota.
