|The Mission at Ste. Marie: Adventures of the Canoe|
Event Type: Adult Programs|
Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Time: 8:30 PM
In 1656 a French-Jesuit expedition ventured to the land of the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) to establish a mission-embassy known today as the Ste Marie Mission at Onondaga Lake. The episode crossed two cultures, the European and the Native Americans. The vehicle that made that crossing possible was the Canoe which played a significant role in the dramatic events that staged that 17th Century adventure. This presentation focuses upon the canoe's role throughout the Ste Marie expedition - Fr. Dablon's miraculous wilderness trek, canoe etiquette, the journey to establish the mission, a mutiny, and the escape episode.
Presented by Jon Anderson.
