For the longest time the French and British never liked each other whether it is in Europe or the New World makes no difference. The biggest export in the New World was beaver skin and the imperial powers of Britain and France agreed on that. To secure access to Beaver breeding grounds the European powers would ally themselves to Native American tribes. The French allied themselves to the Huron and Algonquin tribes, living in central Ontario and New England, in 1609. France 's new allies had long been battling the Mohawks and the
The primary goal of Britain in establishing earlier settlements along the Northern coast is solely for trade. The raw materials gathered from areas in New England like Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Connecticut, and the Rhode Islands were processed into finished goods (“Northern Colonies”). These good were then shipped back to the colonies for profits (Brands et al, 33). Being more industrialized than the Southern counterpart, the northern colonies were well known as center for transport of natural resources such as furs and timbers (“Northern Colonies”).
Beginning in the 1500’s, France and Britain explored North America, but in the 1700s, the countries started to take over these lands. Before the Seven Years’ War, three groups, the French, the British, and the Natives, fought over the right to possess North America. Natives entered into alliances with the French and British in an attempt to maintain balance with them.
The Native Americans had no choice but to play the French and British against each other. By the time of the French and Indian War, they were not just playing the French against the British for goods and guns. (1) It became necessary for the survival of their culture, and the natives were concerned with the vast amounts of land being claimed and settled by the British.
The French did not know what is tobacco; and they could not speak to the Indians. On the other hand, the Indians never used axes, knives, or guns, and were scared of them. The Europeans and Native Americans traded furs but European disease affected a lot. Europeans were eager with furs and the Indians derided them, an example was that the they gave the Indians 20 beautiful knives to exchange a Beaver skin.
By the 1500s, Europe had destroyed almost their source of fur. The occurrence of the “little ice age” resulted in panic from European countries and a ridiculously high demand for furs. This made fur prices rise and Merchants hungry to sell them. This is similar to when China began to use silver as their national currency, which made merchants eager to trade with them. Different from one another, the fur trade was incredibly competitive in the Americas. The majority of trapping, processing, and transporting fur was done by Native Americans, similar to how Native Americans did the majority of the work on silver mines. Europeans would then receive the fur from Native Americans and would sell said fur worldwide, like merchants had done previously with silver. The Siberian fur trade was also similar to the silver trade in a way. The Siberian fur trade brought wealth to Russia, but in turn Native Siberians became dependent on Russian goods they previously did not needed, like the Europeans did with goods they received from the silver trade. The source of this fur also began to die out and became rare, like silver did because of China's high
The trans-Atlantic was an elaborate coastal trade route through which the colonies sold goods to one another, linking the North American colonies to England, continental Europe, and the West coast of Africa through the exchange of slaves, raw materials, and manufactured goods. One of the main impacts this Triangle Trade had was on the laboring systems of the new colonies which left some systems to their original plans of , while new ideas were also introduced. The trans-Atlantic route created opportunities in British North America from 1600-1763 that allowed colonies to maintain their original intentions of working to search for resources for Europe, while also opening many new doors which allowed growth in both labor and trade procedures in all parts of
Although France had fallen behind on their exploration to New World where is called America due to reaching out from wrong direction, French also arrived at America after Columbus discovered the new land. Their point of view was trading not colonizing. Since French realized early that a peaceful relationship with Indians is better to make a profit on trade, they adopted Native American’s cultures and customs with respect. Instead of purchasing furs from Indians, French sold guns that which had high demand for Indian to use for wars with other native tribes. Also, Native Americans showed French where the animals which used for furs can be hunted, and these furs became the primary economic motive for exploring in France. Consequently, French made friends with Native
The transformation of the West changed the frontier into a new and growing part of the United States. Over the period of twenty five years the land changed drastically. New technologies were created allowing the expansion of the United States to continue marching forward. The Native Americans were conquered and the railroads brought greater civilizations.
Crossing over rivers, rolling hills, endless plains, and mountain passes to finally reach a salvation with huge plots of land with boundless capabilities is what many Americans did while passing through the Oregon Trail. The trail allowed many Americans to have an opportunity to prosper, but there were many dangers and perils that they would have to face. The motivation to travel the Oregon Trail was so strong because it allowed endless possibilities for Americans to escape debt, start businesses, farm large sums of land, and for Manifest Destiny.
The Coureur de bois and the fur trade, were small parts, that helped our country, called Canada to develop. The fur trade helped the First Nations, to discover new things to make improved items, like we have now, such as technology. The coureur de bois helped the First nations in a unpradictable way. They traded European items, on there way through the forest, but they did something else. Some of the Coureur De Bois had relastionships with the Native woman. Yes, it may seem different, but it is true. The woman that were wives with
The fur trade first established the Pacific Northwest as a hinterland by encouraging settlers and traders from The competition vigorously grew between Europe, the United States, Spanish cultures, and other participants beyond the coastal region. However, throughout the progression of the Pacific Northwest as a hinterland ships and agricultural merchandise become about, so there was more than farming to offer. Thus, resulting in the everyday reliance of these trading goods.
The difference in climate, the fertility of the soil, and the availability of natural resources in each area caused for vastly different economies to develop. The warm-weathered climate in the Chesapeake Bay coupled with the quality of soil in the region and the availability of the tobacco plant already existing in the area was perfect for the development of the tobacco industry, which soon became the primary focus of the scores of mostly men who were attempting to work in the region. Because tobacco was harvested on large plantations, the farming society required workers. This need for labor provided a means for those in debt in England to travel to the new world, paving the way for slews of men to be left in disarray once their designated periods of servitude ended and suddenly they were thrust into the life of a poor farmer. In New England, the soil quality and weather was much less lucrative. Crops such as tobacco or sugar couldn’t survive the cold weather or rocky topsoil, so colonists had to find other means to make money. Out of this dilemma rose the development of the lumber, fishing, and fur pelt trade. The availability of lumber for ships, the abundance of fish in the area, and the rich pelts of the northeastern wildlife helped lead to the development of an economy that became focused on a merchant
In the 1500s were there were only 13 colonies, they traded many items that soon became the center of there region, but, trading these days is isn’t as important as it was those days. The most important things is getting resources from other countries. If we can go back at that time when trading was important, there would be a lot of merchants in the ports trading many things. There were many farmers in the southern colonies that grow many things. There were also many ocean products in the New England colonies that they traded. If there were other things that also has to do with trading, then find it right in front of you.
The Fur trade was one of the earliest and most important industries of the Canadian history. It played an important role in the development and exploration of Canada. It changed the lives of everyone who was part of it. The Industry was the reason behind European settlement in the Northwest. It allowed First Nations to use European items but also brought diseases. Then came the emergence of the Metis who significantly helped shape the settlement of Canada. The fur trade led to the creation of this new group. These 3 major groups were crucially impacted by the fur trade in positive and negative ways. GET THIS EDITED BY MR.SIMMS
