Chautauqua:VOYAGEURS: Indigenous People, the Fur Trade & Early Chicago

All Ages Living Historian Jon F. Rice introduces audiences to French Canadian fur trader and voyageur, Francois Le Mai, as he and his friend Jean Baptiste Pointe DuSable arrive by canoe to early Chicago. Although nothing more than a little swamp filled with wild garlic and a muddy river running through it, businessman DuSable grasps the importance of that stream: “It’s location, my friend!” Through music, song, and dance, we learn of the Meti-society (Creole culture) of Chicago, and why DuSable, a fur trader of African descent and the “Father of Chicago,” abandoned his dream.
