The Grand Mound now rests silently in a dense grove of trees and ferns where Woodland people began to mound earth over their dead 2,500 years ago. Ancestors of Native Americans gathered annually at this special place on the Rainy River near present-day International Falls to fish for the giant sturgeon, an important food source. Using new information from archaeological digs, archaeologist Budak provides dramatic glimpses into this ancient history of Minnesota.
