The Champlain Valley of Vermont, New York, and Quebec has been a multicultural landscape for thousands of years: the homeland of the Abenaki and Mohawk and a maritime highway for many other Native nations. In 1609 Samuel de Champlain and two other French men joined a northern war party, entering the region and catapulting it onto the stage of world history as the French, English, and Native Americans traded, established alliances, and vied for control. A multilayered partnership has been focusing on seventeenth- and eighteenth-century valley history in preparation for the four-hundredth anniversary of Champlain.
