Centuries ago, a retreating glacier deposited a copper boulder along a depression that became the Ontonagon River, which empties into the south shore of Lake Superior. Throughout the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries, Anishinaabeg and Euro-American peoples sought out the boulder, as both peoples used copper to navigate their cultures and cosmoses. Their interactions with the copper boulder illuminate those different understandings, and trace the transformations in power over the Upper Great Lakes throughout the colonial era.
