Talking Back to Madame Cadillac – A Discussion

The following statement about Madame Cadillac’s trip in 1701 from  Montreal to Fort Pontchartrain in Detroit, is found between the Main Dining Hall and the Cafeteria in Marygrove’s Madame Cadillac Building:

“In 1701, this young wife and mother cast personal safety aside to cross 750 miles of uncharted and hostile Iroquois Territory to join her husband at Fort Pontchartrain…”

Some people have found this statement to be a controversial–even offensive– reference to the league of nations known as the Iroquois. If you would like to be part of a lively and thought-provoking discussion, join us and enjoy a complimentary lunch as well!
