Event details

***Please note this program is being offered virtually via Zoom.***

Death is a part of life, but how did people deal with it 300 years ago in Illinois Country and beyond? Catholics and some Native groups shared similar ideas of a proper passing, including holy bones and the goal of a “beautiful death.” Discover how the people of New France buried, mourned and remembered their dead in this virtual program from Isle a la Cache Museum.
