When voyageurs traversed the Great Lakes, they reached a point in their journey where the only way to safely cross the lake was to hoist light sails on their canoes to carry them through the vast expanse of water. During the sail, they performed a ritual where they honored the old woman of the wind by throwing her beads and tobacco. This story describes some of the history and geography of the Great Lakes region.
