Early Menasha Indian Life

July 22, 1966, Oshkosh Daily Northwestern
Much has been written about Indian life on Doty Island, perhaps to the detriment of valid descriptions of Indian life across the river.  Regardless, Doty Island bears a strong, rich tradition of Indian heritage and gives credence to Bachmann's description of the island as being "a land of milk and honey."  Note: This schematic was originally featured on page 16 of the Menasha book, showcasing the Indian mounds in Smith Park.

  1. I think that map was first published in the 1903 Wisconsin Archeologist, Nos. 2 and 3.
