I heardfrom many that it was as fine a conference as any previously attended, and I agree. Am pondering the idea ofjoining friends fom Chicago and Minnesota and assisting with excavation for two weeks at the Bosnian Pyramidnext September. If I can find some private duty nursing or other special projects to set aside for air fare.Anyway, en route home from Marquette I was in no hurry to go home so drove to an unfamiliar area thatwas once navigatable, now the shortest portage between Lake Superior and Lake Michigan. It is also the home oftwo Ojibwa cousins whose powerful talks very fittingly closed the conference Sunday noon. Next month I am invitedto attend talking circle gatherings within a magnificant long house and sweat lodge at the home of one of these newOjibway friends. It will be a special place to take AWS member Martin Carriere and his son when they come downto the Western Great Lakes area to visit some cousins they have in that region and Green Bay, Wisconsin.(Hopefully) below is page 23 of a 25-page report that AAPS secretary Judy Johnson put together and it includesphotos of this significant ancient route between the two Great Lakes at Au Train in the north and Bay du Noc inake Michigan. The full report can also be accessed via Judy's Forest Lake Circle Mounds Slideshare link. Thisis an area near Judy's home near Skandia, Michigan and also Rapid River, Michigan where the Ojibwaleaders reside:http://www.slideshare.net/JudyMJohnson/forest-lake-circle-moundsWe were unable to load the slide.We were unable to load the slide.
