Le Voyageur Errant

Jay Bailey is Le voyageur errant, having lived the life of a voyageur and survived to share it with you, in as much French or English as you like, for up to 120 students at a time. He can come to you directly, authentically dressed and equipped.

Presentations includes a slideshow of a day in the life of a voyageur, from the New France era, a voyageur song, dance, games of strength and agility, visual demonstrations of the different lengths of canoes used in the fur trade and the size of both voyageurs and their loads, furs, trade goods, how to make fire and how to play the spoons.

A full presentation lasts 150 minutes (half a school day) and costs $400, plus mileage from Simcoe, ON, minus subsidies available from the Ministry of Education through French language and Indigenous culture consultants at individual school boards.
