One hundred sixty years ago, the U.S. government agreed to land rights with Michigan's Ojibwe people after discussions in Washington D.C. The Ojibwe delegation was led by 93-year-old Chief Buffalo, who traveled with the group from Lake Superior to negotiations in the nations capitol.

The story of Chief Buffalo was recently told to Lake Superior Magazine editor Konnie Lemay.

Current State's Peter Whorf spoke with Lemay about the Ojibwe leader's remarkable journey.
