Three hundred years ago, a French-Huron 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 Council’s 2012-2015 Touring Directory. This means that my performances are eligible for GRANT MONIES through the council. La Compagnie is also eligible for 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.
