The local aboriginal community from both the United States metro Detroit area and local Windsor, Ontario area gathered at Detroit’s Belle Isle Park on Friday, August 10, 2012. With the sun shining and warm summer temperatures, the group gathered to launch the first ever USA-Canada Canoe Border Crossing as a peaceful demonstration of the rights stated and found in the Jay Treaty.
Local American Indian Movement of Michigan organizers Bryan Halfday and Helen Wolfe hold the event as a way to increase public awareness about aboriginal treaty rights, create local community support and to educate people about inherent and ancestral rights. The event is planned as a part of a three day weekend of events all related to the Honoring Our Traditions Pow Wow which is held in Lincoln Park, Michigan’s Council Point Park also organized by the local Michigan American Indian Movement chapter.

Daniel Boone (1734 - 1820)
While the name Daniel Boone is associated generally with Kentucky and the West, he also lived in Davie County, in the forks of the Yadkin, for most of 13 years. Boone became the most important explorer in opening the land across the Appalachians to settlement and paved the way for rapid development of that region. From boyhood through manhood, Daniel acquired in Davie County the experience, fortitude, courage, endurance, resourcefulness and expertness with the rifle, which enabled him to succeed in his great undertaking.
Squire Boone, Daniel Boone's father, was born in England in 1696, came to Pennsylvania about 1713, and married Sarah Morgan in 1720. They became the parents of eleven children, and Daniel, the sixth child, was born November 2, 1734. They were a prosperous, well-established Quaker family.
Squire Boone sold his 158-acre farm in Pennsylvania and probably reached North Carolina in late 1751 or early 1752. On April 13, 1753, Squire Boone acquired his first tract of land in Davie County along Elisha Creek. At approximately 18 years of age when his family moved to the county and as an early hunter and explorer, Daniel referred to the Forks of the Yadkin as the best hunting area he ever saw.
On August 14, 1756 at the age of 22, Daniel Boone and Rebecca Bryan, age 17, were married by his father, Squire Boone, who was a Justice of the Peace. Tradition tells that Daniel and Rebecca first lived in a cabin in Squire Boone's yard. They lived for about 10 years near the fork of Sugartree (or Sugar) Creek, approximately two miles east of Farmington. There are no known records which describe this house, but four of his five children are believed to have been born there between May, 1757, and March, 1766.
During this decade while living on Sugartree Creek, Daniel farmed, hunted, explored and worked as a wagoner. According to the records, he received bounties for killing wolves, wildcats and panthers. Although Daniel and Rebecca temporarily left the dangerous and troubled Yadkin River area, he bought a 640-acre Bear Creek site in October, 1759 - which indicated the family definitely intended to return when the Indian danger and other disturbances were over.
Daniel and Rebecca did return to Davie County in 1762, but it is not known whether they returned to the Bear Creek site or his former home on Sugartree Creek. Possibly in the summer or fall of 1766, Daniel and Rebecca moved from their home in Davie County to Holman's Ford on the Yadkin River about 8 miles north of the present Wilkesboro. Daniel and Rebecca left North Carolina in 1775 to finally settle in Missouri about 1800. Rebecca Boone died in 1813, and Daniel died seven years later in 1820.
Daniel's father, Squire Boone, died January 2, 1765, and his mother, Sarah, died in 1777. Daniel's brother Israel died on June 26, 1756. All are buried in the Joppa Cemetery, along with Daniel's brother Israel, one-half mile west of Mocksville on Highway 601.
