The people on the bus have come the DTL LENAPE OMIGA COUNCIL. The DTL council was the first group in North America, who recognized that Hjalmar Holand's 1928 sketch of the waterway between the Red River and the Mississippi River was valid. The DTL council saw man-modified terrain along the waterway.

We plan a CALUMET SAGA TID (Meeting, story telling time) at the Lodge on the Lake Friday evening. The agenda will depend on the attendance. We regret that Carl Johannssen 's wife broke her hip, so he will not attend. He was planning to present a brief summary of his research. [See the link.] The Viking Visitors video. an Introduction, and Copper culture presentations will be available. A projector and big screen will be available for pictures.
Another CALUMET SAGA TID is planned at the Lodge on the Lake for Saturday evening for those staying overnight. Mark Hilde, who was the first mate on the Hjemkomest when it sailed from Duluth to Bergen, Norway will also talk about his adventure on a Viking ship.
As we prepared the information pamphlet for the TOUR we discovered a terrain feature that appears to be man-made. The large terrain feature appears to be located at an unique place. The terrain feature may have served an important function in the VIKING WATERWAY.
We have decided to let you experience the terrain feature in the context of the TOUR. But we also would like the TOURists to evaluate the terrain feature. We want to know what, if anything, we should do about the discovery. So the TOURists will be evaluating this unique terrain feature. Your judgment will be valuable to us.
"All visitors who pay admission are welcomed to see the
[Hjemkomst Long] ship, the 25-min. documentary about the
building and sailing of the ship, and the Viking-era stave
church replica as well as other exhibits in the museum.
If you would like a guided tour for your group*, please make a
reservation with our visitor services coordinator
Markus Krueger. If these are individuals who are coming on
their own, then they need simply to pay admission."
*Mark Hilde has volunteered to be the guide for the guided
tour. Right now the schedule is not firm. The Hjemkomest
center does not open until 12:00 Noon on Sunday. If you
would like a morning tour on Sunday, September 29, 2013,
please inform Mark or I. We may be able to arrange for
Mark to give the tour in the morning.
Water, snacks, and lunch will be provided.
