Mattawa’s Historical Statues….

A Virtual Tour….

I hope you will all enjoy this video I created over the summer about the Historical Statues in Mattawa.

I chose this project because while I was talking to different people, I realized that not many people know that there are actually twenty-four (24) statues throughout the Mattawa area. I thought it would be interesting to learn more about all the characters that are represented.

Also, because of COVID-19 not many people would have been travelling so I thought it would be neat to bring a virtual tour to them.

I learned a lot during my research about voyageurs that have passed through Mattawa but the people that I found especially interesting are the people who lived in Mattawa like Suzanne Dufond and Sister Célina Roy.

I incorporated music into the video that I think represents Mattawa well.
