Ojibwe Campsites in Quetico

Postby snowstorm5 » Fri Jun 03, 2011 7:10 pm

I am writing a book that partly concerns the Canadian fur trade. It is set in the year 1781. I am wondering if you have information about Ojibway campsites in Quetico, and where they might have been.
Thank you, Rachel Lopez

Is this a fiction book or non-fiction? We don't have first-hand information on Ojibwa campsites in Quetico at that time - there may be some references in historical journals/books, etc. There are some campsites that have been used by native peoples for hundreds of years. We have evidence of that in our archaeological sites but we would not be able to give that information out.

If it is during fur trade times the two fur trade routes would provide many campsites. Many that are in use to-day are likely to have been used in those times as well.
