You're invited to a preview screening of "Champlain: The Lake Between."
When Samuel de Champlain first came to the region in 1609, it had
already been a multi-cultural landscape for thousands of years. He was
with a delegation of Native allies and met their enemies with the blast
of his gun. Even with that violent beginning, for the next 150 years
trade alliances created strong connections among many Abenaki, Mohawk,
French, English and Dutch people. Throughout the formative colonial era
of the United States and Canada, Lake Champlain was central to the
struggle for economic and military dominance.
