Minjmendaan is Ojibwe for "to keep in mind; to remember". It is an annual newsletter highlighting Killarney's history and current information about issues that affect First Nation peoples. Its first edition was published in the summer of 2002. Now available online.
Most Killarney people trace their Native roots through Anishinaabe ancestors: the Ojibwe (also called Chippewa), the Odawa (also called Ottawa), and the Pottawatomi. These pages focus on the history and culture of those tribes, who formed an alliance called the Three Fires Confederacy many years before our most recent ancestors settled around Lake Huron.
Above: At the sugar camp of P.R. and Virginie (Miziwek) de Lamorandiere. Pictured outside the boiling shack are Virginie (left), Ernestine Haitse (also standing), and two of Virginie’s granddaughters: Marcella and Stella Proulx. The piles of baskets in the foreground of the photograph were hand made, of birch bark, and used for gathering sap. This photograph was taken about 1918.
