Among the fur traders who attained prominence in the Lake Superior region were Jean Baptiste Cadotte (Cadeau) and his sons, Jean Baptiste, Jr., and Michel.
Each married daughters of prominent Ojibway Indians; became influential as merchants, interpreters and mediators; and were considered by the Ojibways as "Chiefs."
Michel Cadotte established the permanent trading post at La Pointe on Madelaine Island and with his family traveled on the Chippewa River and tributaries, as early as 1787, at various places including Chippewa City, Jim Falls and Cadotte Falls on the Yellow River.
