Detroit was founded in 1701 as a fur-trading post in the wilderness. We'll explore how the abundant natural resources of the Detroit River shaped our local history and discover the roles of Native Americans and the French voyageurs during the era of the fur trade here in Michigan and the Great Lakes. Audience participation will be a big part of this presentation!
