Saturday Afternoon PresentationLocal author Staci Drouillard will be joining us at Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center to talk about her current writings and share some insights about Early European Contact with the Ojibwe on the Gunflint Trail.
Staci’s grandfather, Fred Drouillard and grandmother, Lola had worked at Chik-Wauk Resort in the 1930's and 1940's. Fred was a fishing guide on Saganaga Lake and Lola cooked three meals a day at the resort. Fred and Lola would spend every summer at Chik-Wauk living in the Raven's Nest cabin. Staci’s father, Francis, started work as a bait and dock helper at Chik-Wauk and by the age of 16, was working as a fishing guide alongside his dad.
Staci has earned a BA degree in Native American Studies from University of MN Twin Cities, and a Master of Liberal Studies from University of MN Duluth.
