CROSSLAKE-Susan Krook will speak at 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 18, about early Native Americans in a presentation at the Livery building at the Crosslake Historic Log Village sponsored by the Crosslake Area Historical Society.

Krook is an instructor in the anthropology department at Normandale Community College in Bloomington. She has studied the Native American population in the Crosslake area and has discovered interesting facts about very early inhabitants who lived and thrived in the lakes area, a news release stated.

The release stated, "It is no accident that Minnesota had become a well populated region by 1655. The glaciers had melted and left desirable resources for early people who arrived soon afterwards and initially subsisted by hunting and gathering for their food. The thousands of lakes that had formed along with accompanying rich soils produced environmental conditions that allowed all animals to thrive and set the stage for humans to flourish equally well."
