This website focuses on trade patterns primarily in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The focus is on a place known as “the great carrying place,” a transshipment point where the company headquarters and warehouses of the North West and XY Companies were located. Grand Portage was a trading post located in the midst of a Native community, where company employees wintered, trading with surrounding Ojibwe, also known as the Anishinaabe. The study details how trade patterns at this location impacted the surrounding areas.
