Memorial Highway

Greg Price of Port Wing holds documents Monday detailing his efforts to honor Native American veterans. His latest wish is to have Highway 13 between Superior and Ashland designated the Biauswah Scenic Byway dedicated to all indigenous veterans of the U.S. and Canada before and after the creation of the States.

The Meskwaki and the Ojibwe shared the shores of southern Lake Superior in the 17th Century, but all was not peaceful between them.

Chief Biauswah of the Ojibwe returned to a camp in present-day Port Wing one day to find every man, woman and child slaughtered at the hands of the Meskwaki.
