By Danièle Caloz


She is Marie-Angélique le Blanc, born in 1712 in what is now the state of Wisconsin, as a member of the Fox tribe and sold as a slave at the age of four to some Frenchmen from New France. An incredible set of circumstances has her disembark in Marseille in the midst of a plague, where she lives as a feral child for ten years before becoming a nun. Come and learn about someone who did everything she could to survive, and whose life history was only recently revealed.
