Spring Lecture Series: “Canoe Song: A French Explorer’s Journal”

April 5, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Presentation by Brian “Fox” Ellis, author, historian and storyteller

Travels and Travails of Marquette, Joliet, and LaSalle
Pere Zenoble Membre was a friend of Pere Marquette who traveled through the Midwest with LaSalle, Hennepin and DeTonti. Through the journals of these intrepid explorers, Brian “Fox” Ellis portrays Zenoble, bringing to life the struggles and triumphs of their attempt to build an empire in the wilderness. Through original and traditional songs, poetry and folktales Fox allows listeners to experience first-hand the beauty and grandeur of the voyager. Audience members are invited to barter furs for trade goods, to sing-a-long in French, and to paddle a canoe through the mists of time to see America through the eyes of the first Europeans.

Registration required – 419-214-5000 x 200 or reservations@inlandseas.org
