Age 11

The Minnesota Woman was the name given to the skeletal remains of a woman thought to be 8,000 years old found near Pelican Rapids. The bones were brought to the University of Minnesota for more study. Later, Dr. Albert Jenks identified them as the bones of a 15 or 16 year old woman. Scientists now recognize the girl as someone whose ancestors were Paleo-Indian and now her skeletal remains have been reburied in South Dakota, not available for further study.

Name Meaning

Finnish: variant of Joki ‘river’ + the common surname suffix -nen. In some instances Jokinen arose as a family name from the farm name Jokela .Later, during the name conversion movement of the 19th and early 20th centuries, it was widely adopted as an ornamental name by Finns, especailly as a replacement for Swedish surnames ending in -ström ‘river’.
