The French in North America<br />Joseph M. Kooiker<br />History 140 <br />Professor Arguello<br />
Canada and the Iroquoia<br />When the French arrived in North America they used the Native Americans as allies<br />The French wanted to be able to have access to the fur and fish that was in the areas that they colonized so they bent to the Indian trading policies<br />
Canada and the Iroquoia<br />The Iroquoia were hunters and gatherers<br />Most of the Indians of North Eastern America practiced this kind of economy<br />The French did not ally themselves with the Iroquoia because of their more southern home<br />But they would later violently disrupt the French colony<br />
Canada and the Iroquoia<br />When the Indians first began to trade with the French they traded based on their cultural standards<br />The French would trade their goods including kettles and alcohol<br />The Indians began to drink heavily as well as adapt to a more Western lifestyle<br />
Canada and the Iroquoia<br />Settlers would establish temporary camps <br />These camps would allow the French to meet more of the Indians<br />These settlers set their eyes on the delicious furs that the Indians would wear and which was not available in Europe<br />
French America<br />Not only did the French colonize and settle the Canadian areas but they also moved into the Mississippi Valley and Louisiana<br />Although they controlled the most amount of land in North America they still depended on the Indians to defend their smaller numbers<br />
French America<br />Most of the people who settled the new French colonies were allowed to hunt and fish freely<br />Many inhabitants had to pay taxes to the French government but they were not as much as the taxes in France<br />The government in New France had a very centralized form of authority<br />
French America<br />The French settlements in New France were left much to their own devices because of some disappointment by the Crown of France<br />The French crown began to withdraw much of the French presence from the area<br />
French America<br />The Indians began to become dependent on the goods that the French traders provided<br />Because of the French withdrawal from the region the Indians and the French colonists became very dependent on each other<br />
