ABSTRACT
The first people to come to the region that later became Minnesota probably arrived about 10,000 years ago. They were big-game hunters from northeastern Asia who tracked their food supply. About 500 years ago, an Indian people called the Dakota were the only people living where the prairies of the Drift Plains meet the forests of the Superior Upland. During 1650-1680, French explorers came to Minnesota. The Indians traded furs to the French. In the late 1600s, Native Americans called the Ojibway were moving into the northern and eastern lands of the Dakota people. The Ojibway and Dakota started fighting each other in 1736. By 1800 the Ojibway controlled all of what later became northern Minnesota. In 1858, Minnesota became the 32nd state in the Union.
