Winter Dweller’s Celebration with Genot Picor: a michigan storyteller and folklorist

Join us sunday, jan. 12, 1 to 2:30 p.m.

During the winter months, the French voyageurs were known as “hivernauts,” or

“winter dwellers.” Unable to paddle their canoes in the frozen waterways, they

stayed in camps and found ways to occupy their time. Traveling over land by

foot, they gathered for a winter rendezvous with other voyageur brigades and

First Nations friends and allies. Come spend an afternoon with Michigan’s own

folklorist and storyteller Genot “Winter Elk” Picor for Ann Arbor’s own Winter

Dweller celebration. Feel free to hoot, holler, laugh and join in the festivities.
