Many portions of this site were
created in a collaborative effort between students from Little Black Bear Ojibwe School
(Cloquet, Minnesota), Nah Tah Wahsh Potawatomi School (Hannahville,
Michigan) and the Fond du Lac Culture Center.
Students from the Nah Tah Wahsh
School traveled to Fond du Lac to work with their Little Black Bear
peers and begin the Fond du Lac virtual tour by creating QTVR movies of
artifacts and art work from the Fond du Lac Indian Community during the
first week of April, 2001.
This project is the 2001
addition to the Great Lakes Area Native American Virtual Museum. Attention:
The QTVR movies require you to have the Apple Quicktime Player™
here to get the player.
