Crow Wing Camp

Tales of LaVérendrye

Jean Prud'homme (dit Sans-Quartier) is a historical character based on the life of a soldier who descended the Roseau River with LaVérendrye during his quest for the Western Sea (1734). He had numerous adventures and was instrumental in the building of Fort Rouge, what is now known as Winnipeg.

His incarnation interacts with groups and audiences as he relives his exploits with the great explorer and demonstrates the equipment, clothing and weaponry of a typical French marine from the era. He also talks about the daily struggles of pioneers living in the wild and describes the reactions from the Natives during their first contacts with Europeans.

He makes the history of Canada come alive and can cover topics in both official languages while accommodating various class curriculums such as history, social studies and geography. His presentations are ideal for groups including clubs and school classes.

Jean Prud'homme can be booked on-site or in your school / office. Contact us for more information.
