French colonies of north america

  1. 1. French Colonies of North America<br />By: Kasandra Bartels<br />History 140<br />
  2. 2. Chapter 5: Canada and iroquoia<br />The invention of firearms advanced the Indian Warfare, the Indians involved themselves in hit-and-run raids and ducked behind trees to hide from bullets. For the price of trade, the Indians got their hands on weapons in order to fight back.<br />
  3. 3. Chapter 5: Canada and iroquoia<br />At this time, the French depended on the hostility of the Iroquois to build a barrier to keep the northern Indians from traveling south to trade with the Dutch. The French realized that they could not properly trade with the Dutch.<br />
  4. 4. Chapter 5: Canada and iroquoia<br />The Indians had better quality goods then the French. Their furs were handcrafted. The Indians were also very peaceful people, making them preferred clients and customers of the Dutch. The Iroquois and French depended on each other during most of the 17th Century.<br />
  5. 5. Chapter 5: Canada and iroquoia<br />The 17th Century Europeans thought the non-Europeans to be socially and culturally inferior. The Europeans did not have no biological concept of race, meaning they did not believe that fair-skinned people were superior to people of other color. Europeans ranked their people in terms of social rank rather than skin color. Peasants and laborers were no better than the Indians.<br />
  6. 6. Chapter 16: French America<br />During the 1600’s, less than 250 families immigrated, 12% being women. In 1627, there were only 85 colonists in Quebec. The French combined their two pieces of land, Canada and Louisiana using the river for trading posts.<br />
  7. 7. Chapter 16: French America<br />Hernando de Soto and his men started on a journey near Tampa Bay. They ended up in present day Arkansas two years later. This was considered an epic fail, leaving no permanent settlements, spreading diseases, and left a legacy of destruction, death and udder disappointment.<br />
  8. 8. Chapter 16: French America<br />Almost 130 years after de Soto’s disappointment, Europeans returned to Arkansas. During this time, Spanish ruled Mexico, the French controlled Canada, and the English were colonizing parts of Virginia and New England.<br />
  9. 9. Chapter 16: French America<br />In 1673, two French guys, Jacques Marquette and Louis Joliet planned a journey down the Mississippi River in hopes of finding gold. The Indians gave them a calumet, which is considered a passport for travel along the river.<br />
