Snake River Fur Post 1804





British fur trader John Sayer, a partner in the North West Company, leads a crew of 15 men up the Snake River. They build a fur post, trade with the Ojibwe over the winter, and leave in the spring with hundreds of furs.*

Jesus, thank you for the blessings of trade to Minnesota through this post. Will You forgive any offenses here through John Sayer, and redeem any future interactions with the Ojibwe? By Your authority, I want to bless the Ojibwe people at Snake River, their generations, and their dwellings! Lord help them fulfill the wonderful destiny You have in mind for them!
