With an old ox cart, valuable shotgun and a birch bark canoe model, the new exhibit at the Grand Forks Historical Society shows us a time from many years ago.

The Historical Society thinks their new Native American exhibit is perfect for all ages. They said they reached out to many private collectors for these artifacts that will help give insight into a different culture. They hope residents will want to take a look.

"Hopefully it will educate a lot of people about a history of our valley that perhaps they learned a bit about in high school, but very briefly," said Historical Society Executive Director Leah Byzewski.

The exhibit runs all summer at the Myra Museum in Grand Forks. It is five dollars for ages sixteen and up, and children get in free with an adult.
