Voyageur Visits CTES

JeanPierre, a French voyageur from Quebec, traveled the Connecticut River to the Black River to pay a visit to the CavendishTown Elementary School fourth graders. He brought with him beaver and fox pelts and talked about how he worked for the Hudson Bay Trading Company.

He also shared stories of his travels, including a story about an encounter with a black bear, as well as a story about his Indian friend, Kahote.
