An art exhibit in Duluth offers a rare and rich portrayal of the lives of Ojibwe Indians, during the period when white settlers were moving to Wisconsin and Minnesota.
This sounds like a cool exhibit to check out!

Quote:
"Where else would a New Englander ever meet an African American on such intimate terms?" he asks. "And when he went back out east and the abolitionist movement was just starting, he saw something that was really important that he wanted to be a part of -- the humanity of black people. Just as he was able to capture the humanity of Ojibwe people in this part of the country."

If you look at the one labeled, "Ojibwe Women", the mom is breastfeeding.
