We first started off with the park rangers doing a little French Canadian Voyageur skit in full French accents which was quite cute! They really went overboard but it made it all that much more fun! We started off inside and then moved out to the deck. Even though the skit was super cheesy, they provided a great deal of valuable information on the dress of the Voyageur (knotted ceinture flechee or legging ties to keep leeches out), how they traveled, what they ate (food in their caps), how they worked, etc. Here's an interesting article about what Voyageurs wore.
