chrismarkLocal historian and IVCC staff member, Mark Walzinski, brought an enlightening presentation about the "original" outdoorsmen in our area.
Of course Mark was speaking of native American Indians.  In our minds, he brought us back to a time of survival.  The daily, monthly, annual actions of Indians were done with much thought and preparation.  Decisions were made and activities were done with one common theme, survival.
 
Today, many of fish and hunt for sport/recreation.  Back then it was done for survival.  Where they lived, what they did and when they did it was precise and with purpose.  Their determination to survive and commitment to provide for their families was their driving force.  It is was motivated them to accomplish their goals and fulfill their role.
