Three hundred years ago, a mixed blood (called Metis’) scout disappeared into the wilderness to explore and trade. He found his way to the Great Lakes, where he was taken in by the Ojibwa People of the region. He was given a name and became part of their tribe.
Today, he returns to share with you the stories, songs and dances of the places he explored, from the Great Lakes, to the Ohio, Mississippi, St. Lawrence and Mohawk Valleys.
Genot Picor Presents “Stories, Songs and Dances of the Metis’ Voyageur”.
GOOD NEWS! I am now a member of the Michigan Arts and Humanities

GRANT MONIES and will be included in the same directory. Please contact the Michigan
Arts and Humanities Council at (517) 372-7770 or at michiganhumanities.org. I am
a retired public school Teacher Consultant and Master’s Level Clinical Psychologist. I also
hold a Master’s Degree in Theatre Arts and Interpretive/Performance Studies from
Eastern Michigan University, Department of Speech, Media and Theatre (April, 2015). I
have performed to audiences of all ages, at festivals, museums, in numerous school

dances, and puppetry. You can read my published stories in The Great Lakes Pilot, Smoke
