From the Pineries to the Present
— Heritage Tourism Area —Of nine million acres of land in Wisconsin originally controlled by the Menominee, they chose the surrounding Keshena Falls as their present reservation. Because sturgeon were so important to the Menominee, so too was the falls. It was here that sturgeon stopped on their upstream spawning runs each spring, until construction of two downstream dams blocked their annual return.
