My name is Monique, I'm from Winnipeg, Manitoba. I study History and Anthropology at the University of Winnipeg, and I presently work as a costumed interpreter at Lower Fort Garry National Historic Site, operated by Parks Canada. The Fort was built of limestone in 1831, for the Hudson's Bay Company governor, George Simpson and was a major transhipment post and agricultural depot for the HBC.
My main historical interests are: Canadian fur Trade, Hudson Bay Company History, British Naval History, Aboriginal (or Native American, for all the Americans out there) History. I also study Paleoanthropology and Primatology. Oh, and just as an aside, I'm also a sucker for Popular Musicology ;)
