Excerpt from The Kankakee: River of History

No one knows when human beings first occupied the Kankakee Valley. Excavations have brought to light the bones of strange animals, but whatever bones of humankind have been unearthed, are dated within the past two hundred years.

In the days when practically all distant travel was by canoe, there was undoubtedly a connection between the end of Lake Michigan and the Kankakee River. There was a time when the lake was about six feet higher than now, and a period when Lake Superior flowed into and out of Lake Michigan. There was probably a period when some prehistoric form of mankind traveled over this route. If the theory of the researchers is true, there were copper miners from the Maya ancient country of Yucatan who journeyed from the Gulf of Mexico up the Mississippi to mine copper in the Lake Superior region ten thousand years ago.
