At the end of the Seven Years War, the missionary François Picquet escaped Montreal and fled to New Orleans. He carried with him a little manuscript book, bound in soft buckskin, containing Catholic hymns translated into Mohawk. Based on research carried out in Chicago, New Orleans, and Bourg-en-Bresse, the presenter will trace the travels of the manuscript, present Picquet’s transatlantic, multiracial world, and reveal his involvement with linguistic projects in the Bressan dialect.
