Storyboard Text

  • I am so tired! My hands hurt! My back aches!!
  • Oh no!! My paddle!!
  • Hi,my name is Henry and I live with my mother father and two sisters. I am going to become a voyageur because my father has gotten very ill and I am the only one that can help because my mother has to take care of my sisters.
  • I was positively the worst voyageur in the canoe. My hands and feet hurt so bad but I knew that I couldn't complain.I had to show them that I was strong and that I was not just a wimpy thirteen year old that missed home.I like the men in my brigade they are very happy people!
  • Welcome to Grand Portage!
  • Today was the worst day of the trip so far. We hit the first (and hopefully last) set of rapids. I am just happy that we did not have to portage like the other canoes! My paddle almost broke in between two rocks! I just hope that there won't be any more rapids.
  • Have you made your choice?Do you want to winter here or be a hivernant?
  • No! You should be a hivernant , don't you miss your family!
  • You should winter here!
  • When we finally made it to Grand Portage it was the best thing that has happened to me in the past six months. Walking through the camp and seeing all of the tipis and tents but most of all seeing the trading post. I had a lot of free time in the camp so I decided to make the most of it. I usually  went exploring and I sometimes helped the camp.
  • The pressure of deciding was terrible,but in the end I decided to go back home after all I did really miss my family,but that won't stop me from signing on next year. After all these guys are like my second family!  Maybe next year I will try wintering here!
