Event Description:
"A Visit With an 18th Century Fur Trader", performed by Kevin Stonerock, is an entertaining, informative and interactive theatrical performance designed to engage the audience and give them a better understanding of the vital role of the fur trade as it related to European and Native American populations in what is now Northern Indiana. Chain is proud to host this program 4 times this summer at Stanley Schoolhouse.

The "Fur Trader" is a true-to-life character compiled from a variety of fur trade sources. The trader, a Scotsman named Jacob McLinden, takes the audience on a journey from Montreal to the Indian Country and through a year in the fur trade in the mid 1700's. He familiarizes them with many trade goods, fur bearing animals, voyageur life, fur trade vocabulary, music and the ways of Indians and traders.

This program is made possible through the support of the Indiana Arts Commission in cooperation with the Indiana Department of Natural Resources. For more information about this artist please visit
