Onamia Off The Beaten Path

    A short distance south of Onamia you will find this historical marker to Izatys on the east side of U.S. Hwy. 169. It is owned by the State of Minnesota and placed by the Minnesota State Historical Society. Adjoining it is the Mille Lacs Indian Museum; across the highway is the Kathio Town Hall.

    The inscription on the monument reads:

    Izatys

    In this vicinity stood
    the grand Sioux village
    of Izatys where Duluth
    planted the French arms
    on July 2, 1679.
    The settlement was visited by
    Father Hennepin in 1680.
    About 1750 the Chippewa
    moving westward from
    Lake Superior, captured the
    village, and by this decisive
    battle drove the Sioux
    permenantly into southern
    Minnesota.

    Favorite thing: Finally! Some pictures of ice fishing on Lake Mille Lacs! These photos are taken from the sothern end of the lake near the town of Onamia. You can drive out onto the ice from any of the resorts there.
