History lunch coming up

MARQUETTE — The Marquette Regional History Center presents: “Lunch with the History People” featuring Jim Paquette on Tuesday.

Bring a bag lunch at noon to the History Center that date to listen to and ask questions of archeology enthusiast Jim Paquette.

Paquette is a true native son of the Upper Peninsula. He is a direct descendant of the noted Anishinaabe/Metis/French Riviere St. Joseph, Michilimackinac et La Baye fur-trading families of Ouaouagoukoue et Reaume/L’Archeveque/Chevallier/Marcot.

Widely recognized today as being one of the preeminent authorities on Upper Great Lakes archaeology, Paquette has been conducting a personal spirit quest — an ongoing archaeological field survey — since 1984 to locate, document, preserve, and most importantly, to “learn from” early First Nation cultural sites in the central U.P.

His quest to uncover the missing knowledge of his ancestors’ ancient past has lead him to make numerous significant archaeological finds in the highlands of Marquette County.
