The January 11 River Talk features a presentation from Evan Larson, University of Wisconsin-Platteville and Melonee Montano, Red Cliff tribal member and University of Minnesota graduate student. It will be held in-person at the Lake Superior Estuarium (3 Marina Dr., Superior, Wisconsin) and also by Zoom. Evan and Melonee will describe a collaborative project that is bringing information from tree rings and oral history together to understand how the Anishinaabeg people used fire to tend the landscape and how the return of fire can contribute to both
cultural and ecological restoration.
