Episode 9 - End of the Journey

Set sail for adventure!

Be part of a unique adventure aboard L'Espérance, a three-masted schooner such as those that transported our ancestors from the Old Continent to America.

The first route is that taken by the colonists. Each week, you can follow their daily progress aboard the ship making the journey from La Rochelle to Quebec City by clicking on the blue dots on the map.

The second route is a fictional crossing based on archival material from that period of what could have occurred in the colonial era. Click on the yellow dots on the map to find out more.

The site contains exclusive video clips, surveys and photo galleries. Enjoy the adventure!

Born in St. Boniface, I was raised on the vast Manitoban prairies with a childhood immersed in the province's Francophone Métis culture. I inherited a number of values that have grown into a love for my family, culture and the Francophone language and community.
