On Sunday, Janet Timmerman, education program coordinator at the History Center of Olmsted County in Rochester, Minnesota, will give talks at the Cultural Heritage Center in Pierre entitled "Leading the Pathfinders: Joseph LaFramboise on the Coteau des Prairie, 1833-1838." LaFramboise was a 19th century fur trader who formed friendships with the Sisseton-Wahpeton Dakota community. His local knowledge was helpful in the explorations and writings of George Catlin, Joseph Nicollet and John C. Fremont.
