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.
