Wisconsin has been home to a wide variety of cultures over the past 14,000 years.The first people arrived around 10,000 BCE during the Wisconsin Glaciation.The old French title was gradually dropped, and the British name of "Green Bay" eventually stuck.The region coming under British rule had virtually no adverse effect on the French residents as the British needed the cooperation of the French fur traders and the French fur traders needed the goodwill of the British.These early inhabitants, called Paleo-Indians, hunted now-extinct ice age animals such as the Boaz mastodon, a prehistoric mastodon skeleton unearthed along with spear points in southwest Wisconsin.After the ice age ended around 8000 BCE, people in the subsequent Archaic period lived by hunting, fishing, and gathering food from wild plants.Wisconsin is known as "America's Dairyland" because it is one of the nation's leading dairy producers, particularly famous for its cheese.Manufacturing, especially paper products, information technology (IT), cranberries, and tourism are also major contributors to the state's economy.
