Family Fun Night - Voyageur Living History Program

"Le Voyageur de Saginaw" (aka Wally Ewing, with friends) will both entertain and educate families about French-Canadian Voyageurs and life during the Great Lakes fur trade. Children and parents alike will experience 'living history' through exciting hands on activities. Participants will examine artifacts and hear the stories they tell; learn to paddle, sing, and participate as a trade-canoe crew member; make trade bead crafts and musical wooden spoons; experience authentic songs, fiddle music, and dances of the 1700's; and taste what Voyageurs ate and drank. Relive and experience history through this rare interactive program.
