TEA TIME–Carisa LaFernier uses deer antlers to move hot rocks away from a fire and into bowls of water, which were then used to steep cups of tea at a pre-1500’s feast held at the Zeba Hall in L’Anse last Thursday. Food and drink were all locally harvested, and some were prepared beforehand the old-fashioned way.

The Keweenaw Bay Indian Community and company enjoyed a taste of the distant past last Thursday at a feast held at Zeba Hall in L’Anse. The meal consisted of foods available to the Ojibwe
tribe in the UP before colonization, which was before 1500. The event was a collaborative effort between the KBIC Natural Resources Department and the Lake Superior Stewardship Initiative. To read more, subscribe to the L’Anse Sentinel online, or buy a print copy at our local retailers.
