Lives of the Voyageurs event – Oct 10

Go back to early Lake County as 18th-century French voyageurs lead activities on land and water. Discover why voyageurs traveled to Illinois in the 1740s and learn their effect on natural and cultural development. Weather permitting, paddle our 34-foot canoe across the lake and back in time.

As a special addition to the program, a member of the Ojibwe tribe will be present to teach our Braves and Princesses about how the Native Americans traded with the Voyageurs and how it changed their lives forever.

Download the waiver here. A waiver must be completed and brought with for each family attending. Father and child may share the same waiver. This event is being held at Independence Grove in Libertyville. Click here for more information on the specific location, and to add it to your calendar.

Due to the size of our group, there are two sessions being held. One from 9:00am to 10:30am, and another from 10:30am to Noon. Choose the best that works for you.

2015 Fall Campout Recap

Last weekend over 100 of our guides and princesses participated in the annual fall camp out at Camp Anokijig. It was another unforgettable experience, with some of the best weather we have ever had.

Our Indian Guides and Indian Princesses participated in archery, bb guns, canoeing, kayaking, and our ever popular critter race. Additionally there was the Nation bonfire, where we experienced Native American stories and songs.

See below for some of the pictures from last weekend’s campout. And if any dads have more pictures they’d be willing to share, send them to your chief and ask him to get them on the website.
