Fascinated? Read our blog!
At events, we generally portray veteran voyageurs—the hivernants or wintering men—and their families. In reality, we are history geeks. We’re especially geeky about the fur trade era in the upper Midwest, roughly 1790 through 1840. Some of us like to write so we started a blog to share some of what we know, like and enjoy about the fur trade.
Visit us at a voyageur living history event.
Look for us! We appear in colorful period-appropriate clothing with our replica birch bark canoes and authentic fur trade goods at historic sites, rendezvous, “heritage days,” community celebrations, festivals and educational events across Minnesota and Wisconsin.
Hire us for your fur trade event!
