Portage La Biche

At the Portage La Biche exhibit, you will find storyboards detailing David Thompson’s journey in becoming the first European to record a trip to Lac la Biche, confirming its existence in his journal on October 4, 1798. The exhibit mural was designed and painted by the Lac La Biche Art Club. The mural includes an artists’ interpretation of David Thompson looking through a sextant; with no images of David Thompson found to date, it is not known for certain what he truly looked like.
