John Gurda: From Beaver Pelts to Poker Chips

20131104-145433.jpg

Few men can provide an in-depth historical analysis as eloquently and insightfully as John Gurda.

In his most recent monthly column in the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Gurda delves deep into local Native American history to provide much-needed, but often ignored, context to the current Menominee casino controversy.

It is well worth a read if you find yourself a need of a refresher in American Indian history.
