Indigenous Water Travel in the 1300s: Live Streamed Event

The Marine Museum of the Great Lakes at Kingston is hosting an event which may be of interest to those in the paddling community. See below:

Indigenous Water Travel in the 1300s and Beyond
by Rick Revelle
Date: Thursday, 2 December 2021 from 7:00 PM (EST) 9:00 PM (EST)

Rick joins the Maritime Museum of the Great Lakes to share his knowledge of Indigenous water travel in the pre-contact period. Join us as we explore the Great Lakes region before the building of roads and bridges, when knowledge of the waterways was a means of survival. Rick touches upon Indigenous trade routes, warfare and the role of the canoe using an extensive collection of artifacts.

About the Presenter: Rick is the author of The Algonquin Quest series. The series follows an Algonquin Native family unit as they fight to survive in the harsh climate of warfare, survival from the elements and the constant quest for food during the pre-contact period of 1320-1350s. The series takes place in the St Lawrence Valley, the Great Lakes and the Rocky Mountains. Rick introduces readers to the Algonquin, Anishinaabe, Lakota, Mi´kmaq, Mohawk, and Lakȟóta, languages as they are used in the vernacular in the four novels. The last of the series, Algonquin Legacy, is set to release in 2021.

Rick is a member of the Ardoch Algonquin First Nation and is a Knowledge Keeper with the Limestone District and Algonquin Lakeshore Catholic School Boards.
