PORTAGING AROUND THE FALLS

"For untold generations of Indian people the

Mississippi River was an important canoe route.

To pass around the falls, the Dakota (Sioux) and

Ojibway (Chippewa) used a well-established

portage trail. Starting at a landing below the

site now occupied by the steam plant, the

trail climbed the bluff to this spot. From here

it followed the east bank along what is now

Main Street to a point well above the falls."
