Author And Lecturer
Summary: In 2015 we have seen, and will continue to see a lot of attention on the historic persona of Samuel de Champlain, as part of the 400th year commemoration of his trip to Ontario. Efforts are being made to look at the other side of the trip, the Wendat side. One way of doing that is learning about Atironta (‘he draws or attracts’), the Rock nation leader with whom Champlain stayed. There is a great deal of story to tell. In this presentation I will talk both about the individual, and about the history and significance about his name
Meetings are open to the public at no charge.
Please note that Midland Public Library has graciously offered their Assembly Room on the lower floor for this event.
