Or Portage de Traite, leading from the Saskatchewan
River, by way of Cumberland Lake, the Sturgeon-Weir River, Heron,
Pelican, and Woody Lakes, to the Churchill. It was discovered by Joseph
Frobisher, who built a temporary trading-post there in 1774. Two years
later Thomas Frobisher built a more substantial fort at the same place.
He was joined there in that year by Alexander Henry, and plans were
matured for intercepting the western Indians on their way down the
Churchill to trade at Prince of Wales Fort. Alexander Mackenzie says
that the Indians called the portage Athiquisipichigan Ouinigam, or the
Portage of the Stretched Frog Skin. =Bib.=: Bryce, Hudson's Bay
