The Centre for Rupert's Land Studies at The University of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, in cooperation with Washington State University, will hold its ninth Biennial Colloquium on May 24-28, 2000, at the Heathman Lodge in Vancouver, Washington.
The Rupert's Land Colloquium gives people from a wide range of disciplines and experiences opportunities to share their work and interests concerning the peoples and history of Rupert's Land - the territory which the Hudson's Bay Company claimed from 1670 to 1870 as well as the surrounding borderlands. Sessions will focus on the fur trade, on any aspect of Native history or culture, and on the Pacific Northwest in recognition of the local of this meeting.
Participants will have the opportunity to visit the reconstructed Fort Vancouver, a Hudson's Bay Cjompany post from 1824 to 1860. In addition, there will be excursions to the John McLoughlin House in Oregon City, French Prairie, site of a 19th century Metis settlement, and a full-day excursion to Fort Astoria where Americans established a trading post which the British North West Company renamed Fort George.
